Wordless Wednesday: Sundog

Sundog: an optical phenomenon that is sometimes observed in the sky when sunlight interacts with ice clouds or particles in the atmosphere.

Thanks, Marshall, for spotting this and pointing it out to me.

Linking up to (almost) Wordless Wednesday Again.

  13. I’ve been noticing more and more photos of unusual phenomena in the skies lately–like your sundog. The last one was called a “nightbow”, I think–the nighttime equivalent of a rainbow. Must be our crazy weather.
