These are common in my area, 40 degrees south, whenever the upper air is particularly cold, such as when there are ice crystals and cirrus clouds, or passenger jets are making contrails.  The rainbow colours often occur at 22 degrees from the sun (the same as the halo) and sometimes there's another halo at 46 degrees.  The rainbow colours can also occur less than five degrees from the sun in small, whispy, lower clouds -- I'm not sure which, but possibly stratocumulus.

You can also see the halo effect around the moon at night.  These effects are nothing to worry about -- just two of many perfectly ordinary meteorological effects.

A lot of people did Y2K compliance work, and the rollover was with only minor incidents.  It is frequently claimed that the first was the cause of the second.

Yes, that's what I'm saying.
