Artist's Description

A “Sun Dog” 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, as seen here.

Famous philosophers called these “Mock Suns” or “Double Suns” even referring to it as “no small miracle”. Shakespeare would often write of this.

Today, we know that during very cold weather, hexagonal ice crystals called diamond dust drifting in the air at low levels will cause this.

I feel fortunate to have seen one of these, as anyone in a tropical climate may never see one in a lifetime.
