Amazing Sun Dogs

There was the phenomena known as Sun Dogs shinning over the Winnipeg horizon this morning. They are brilliant to watch, however, they are caused by ice crystals in the air, which means it is usually bloody cold when they appear.

The sun dog is a member of the family of halos, caused by the refraction of sunlight by ice crystals in the atmosphere. 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. They can be seen anywhere in the world during any season, but are not always obvious or bright. Sun dogs are best seen and most conspicuous when the Sun is near the horizon.
