Ice Rainbows and Sun Dogs
While traveling to Ohio to visit with family
we saw an astonishing sight along I-70.
Then, we noticed the prism of light, or Sun Dog,
in the pale, second rainbow.
At first I thought it was the sun in the upper right-hand
corner of the frame.
But no, that is a Sun Dog.
A Sun Dog is a parhelion, which means "besides the sun",
or "mock sun".
They are usually 22 degrees from the sun and are
formed in ice crystals and when the sun is low in the sky.
