Sun Dogs
10 months ago

We are having an unusually warm December.  I was sitting outside this afternoon hoping to capture some birds, but instead I saw these Sun Dogs.  This was the first time I've seen one on each side of the sun, and you can almost make out the arc/halo connecting them.

Ive read that these appear on cold days when there are ice crystals in the air and the sun is at the right angles.  However I've only seen them on hot days,, like today!
