Sun-bow?


This was the wildest thing; a rainbow around the sun. It formed a perfect circle and changed in intensity. At one point, the area inside the circle looked almost black as if some eclipse were in progress. Another time, it looked like a lovely rainbow of various colors. Then the whole thing just blew away. It was a ring of clouds, I guess; as they separated, the circle just disappeared.
We couldn't find a camera that would capture the entire thing so these were the best photos we could manage.

Oops. Posted on the wrong blog entry. That thing you photographed is called a sun dog.
