Dogs are a member
of a large family of halos, created by light interacting with ice crystals
in the atmosphere. Sun dogs typically appear as two subtly colored patches
of light to the left and right of the Sun, approximately 22° distant
and at the same elevation above the horizon as the Sun. They can be seen
anywhere in the world during any season, but they are not always obvious
or bright. Sun Dogs
are best seen and are most conspicuous when the Sun is close to the horizon.
