The natural world offers a continual display of fascinating optical phenomena. This talk reviews these natural optical phenomena with a combination of colorful photographs and optical diagrams. Examples are shown of optical scattering, diffraction, refraction, reflection, and emission. Technical and non-technical audiences alike will leave this talk with a greater understanding of sky colors, rainbows, halos, coronas, iridescence, glories, glitter patterns, and auroras.
