    Post your Sun Dog

    Looked for a Sun Dog thread. Found three that were not general. If someone finds one, please let me know and I'll merge this thread with the other.

    Marilynne I thought a sun-dog was when a ring forms around the sun in a sky with ice crystals.

    From your link - Sun dogs typically appear as a pair of subtly colored patches of light, around 22° to the left and right of the Sun, and at the same altitude above the horizon as the Sun.

    This was to the left of the sun.

    WHAT ARE SUN HALOS?

    You may have heard of a related phenomenon called a “sun halo.” In this case, it’s an entire circle of light 22° wide around the Sun. Similar to sundogs, sunlight is refracts through ice crystals; these hexagonal ice crystals are suspended in cirrostratus clouds.
