SUNDOG-IN-OHIO

While exploring southern Ohio with a friend this week, we experienced one of the largest sundogs I'd ever seen.  It was too large to get in one photo. In the past, like multiple rainbows, I have seen more than one bow around the sun. During this event I could see only one bow in the sundog.  Usually on the front edge of a warm front, they are caused by high altitude ice crystals in cirrostratus clouds. Sundogs predict precipitation within three days. (It rained the second day.) What a marvel to see.  It was fun to be with a friend who had never experienced one before and didn't know such a phenomenon existed. They were in awe at the sunny beauty. So was I!

Keep looking up!
