Title image

This is a photograph taken by my friend Ciara from her house on a very cold winter day in Saskatchewan. This is the sun taken by directly pointing the camera at the pale sun with its sun dogs, an optical effect in the north from ice crystals hanging in the air. It is a sort of ice rainbow.

      The image is of sun-dogs. They are like rainbows but the optical effect is not from water droplets but from ice crystal needles suspended in the air. The optical effect is well documented in various google sources and wikipedia.
