As I was picking up Moe, my Labradoodle, from doggie daycare a couple of days ago, I noticed bright, rainbow-like features on either side of the setting sun. So I grabbed my camera, zoomed in, and took some shots.
In the photo above, you’re looking at a classic “sun dog,” part of a halo around the sun caused by plate-like crystals in clouds. There was another sun dog on the other side of the sun when I shot this photo. (And btw, for a pic of Moe, an actual dog, goÂ here.)
