Sundog-Something one dont see everyday

here is something you dont see everyday, some may not have ever seen this. Its called a sundog, this isnt the prettiest one ive seen here in Minnesota, this last wed. it was 30 below zero, little snow, but alot of wind, white out conditions. as the sun came up, i got a picture of this outside my home. hope you enjoy

I just saw a lunar halo the other night in N. Florida.

Haven't seen one in a long time. I do miss my old SLR, point and shoots are great but for special photos or night shots they just don't cut it.

I do like the cold.

June, July and August are in the 60s and 70s except the area around Fairbanks where it can hit 90s.

While I have seen the Northern Lights in Alaska, the best I've seen have been in Canada heading down the ALCAN Hwy.

Anyone know what these are called? This pic was actually a little late. This was preceded by something similar, kinda like a rainbow that goes straight up without an arc? Just prior to sunup, definitely cold, maybe -10f, Gaylord Mi.
