Sun Dogs

16 Jan 2018 05:34 AM
If you were outside yesterday afternoon braving the cold conditions, you likely noticed a very bright "Sun Dogs" display. These are the two bright spots horizontally on either side of the sun and are caused by light refraction through vertically oriented / falling ice crystals. These are common during cold and blowing snow situations. The featured image is from the KCRG-TV webcam in Iowa City Monday afternoon showing the right-hand (to our perspective) sun dog.

Good: 4
