The Sun is Dogged

Reader Graham Barnett sends in this marvellous image of a parhelion, or Sun Dog. This was seen at Parkdale Victoria about 4:10 PM 19-07-09 for quite a while. The images were taken by his son-in-law with his digital camera (click to embiggen).

Sund Dogs tend to be rather rare in Australia, and are formed in a manner similar to rainbows, but represent the suns light being reflected back by thin plate like-ice crystals high in the atmosphere.
