Sun Dogs

Weather

Sun Dogs, otherwise known as parhelia, are sunlight reflecting off ice crystals in the sky. These crystals will then form a halo around the sun.

Usually to the left and right side of the sun at a 22 degree angle, you’ll find patches of light or rainbows, formed from the ice crystals. Most of the ice crystals are found in cirrus clouds or cirrostratus clouds. Thanks to everyone who submitted photos!
