Wow! The phenomenon, called a "Sundog," happens when ice crystals appear in clouds and refract the sun's rays. Taken in Heyworth, Illinois, US. Crystals Phenomenon Atmosphere - I would love to see this in person

Burning bright: The spectacular 'fire rainbow' that bathed the Scottish sky in a palette of stunning colours

The amazing cloud type is caused by a unique combination of the sun's position and the shape of ice crystals in the air

Sun Dogs ~ are made of a large family of halos, created by light interacting with ice crystals in the atmosphere. Sun Dogs are best seen and most conspicuous when the Sun is close to the horizon.
