Halo SUN

Published April 14th, 2012

Woke up this morning to find everyone tlking about this weird ring around the sun, first thing that came to my mind was grab my cam an head outside. Looked at it for a while then tried to comp the perfect shot, at the same time im going to shoot my neighbors pigeons come flying into the shot at first i was like NO! because i wanted a clean shot then after reviewing the shot saw that it was the SHOT THAT STOOD OUT THE MOST out of all that i took.

Put a ring on it!

Sun Dog i think is the scientific name for it
"A sun dog or sundog, scientific name parhelion (plural parhelia) from Greek παρήλιον (parēlion), meaning "beside the sun"; from παρά (para), meaning "beside", and ἥλιος (helios), meaning "sun", also called a mock sun[1] or a phantom sun,[2] is an atmospheric phenomenon that creates bright spots of light in the sky, often on a luminous ring or halo on either side of the sun.[3]
Sundogs may appear as a colored patch of light to the left or right of the sun, 22° distant and at the same distance above the horizon as the sun, and in ice halos. They can be seen anywhere in the world during any season, but they are not always obvious or bright. Sundogs are best seen and are most conspicuous when the sun is low." - Wikipedia
