For light to enter the cirrus cloud crystals at just the right angle to make a circumhorizon arc, the sun must be at an angle of at least 58 degrees above the horizon.
A circumhorizon arc only forms when the clouds contain a specific, hexagonally shaped ice crystal.
Several very specific conditions must exist in tandem for a circumhorizon arc to occur.
