What Causes Sun Dogs?
A Sun Dog is an atmospheric optical phenomenon that consists of a bright spot to one or both sides of the Sun. The Sun dogs happen when the sunlight passes through high-altitude ice crystals in cirrus clouds. The phenomenon is also known as ‘parhelion.’ They typically appear as a pair of subtly coloured patches of the light, to the left and right of the Sun. They can be seen anywhere in the world during any season, but are not always obvious or bright. The Sun dogs are best seen when the Sun is near the horizon.
This is not the first time that people in China woke up to the beautiful sight. Although rare, the citizens have often witnessed this beautiful occurrence in the sky. Residents of a town in Xinjiang in north-western China were treated to a similar sight too on an afternoon in December, last year. Again, in February this year, above horizon in inner Mongolia.
