Sundog

IMG_3416Here’s a sundog that looks a bit sun-angelic to me.
IMG_3414We’ve been having quite a few sundogs here lately.
This one showed up so well in my photo from the
evening of Father’s Day that I decided to share it.

IMG_3472A half hour later the sundog looked somewhat like a rainbow sun-arrow.

It’s fun spotting atmosphere phenomenon and it’s a happy bonus when I have my camera available to ‘try’ and capture it to share with you.

Here’s wishing you all a great weekend.

      I can’t figure out why I’d never heard of them until about 10 years ago. Back then, I photographed an upside-down rainbow. It was so odd and as I was surfing the net to find out info on that phenomenon I also learned about sundogs.
      Marshall’s a peach.
      We learn alot from our kids (and grandkids). 🙂

  1. I have never heard of sundogs until I saw your post – so of course, I had to google it! They are fascinating, and I guess you were lucky to be able to photograph them. Seeing an upside down rainbow must have been awesome too.

      The upside-down rainbow was fun to see, but my most favorite rainbow sighting was a fire-rainbow. My husband & I were coming home from shopping when we saw it in the sky. We didn’t have a camera, but we pulled over and watched until it totally dissipated. It was awesome! The sky is a magical sight sometimes. 🙂

      It’s funny how we see things and never think about what they’re called. It’s also funny why someone would call a solar anomaly a dog. I guess even scientists enjoy a bit of whimsy now and then. lol 🙂
