Last Monday I went out for an evening walk and was witness to this Sun Dog. For whatever reason the other sundog was extremely faint so I focused on this one. I don't know a lot about sun dogs except that they have to do with refraction/reflection of sunlight through ice crystals associated with cirrus clouds and they generally preceed bad weather. I was going to quote Wikipedia however there are some fabulous sundog photos on their page so I have linked it above.
I was not wrong about the bad weather, winter got its last kick in with two days of snow...
which seams like a pretty distant memory today!
