Sundogs Barking In KELOLAND

January 24, 2014, 6:47 PM by Scot Mundt

Sundogs Barking In KELOLAND

The warm weather on Friday will soon be replace with another round of arctic air early next week. While a lot of us shelter ourselves from the chill, others see the hidden beauty mother nature has to offer. That beauty comes in the form of sundogs. 

Here are some photos of sundogs. They are the bright spots equal distant from the sun you may see usually near sunrise and sunset.  Sometimes you can even see the full arc connecting the two bright spots around the sun. 

We've received numerous photos over the past several days of sundogs across KELOLAND. They form by the refraction of the sun's light through tiny ice crystals at high altitudes, much like how rainbows form when it rains.

While sundogs are seen when the sun is low, at times a full halo around the sun can also be seen.  This too is formed by suspended ice crystals or when high level cirrus clouds move under the sun.  Halos can also be seen around the moon at night.

Thank you for those viewers that snapped photos of sundogs over the recent days.  Please continue to share your weather photos with us through Another round of cold air will move in early next week, so sundogs and halos will be a great possibility.
