Crew Member Captures Allusive Sun Dog

Wow! Our crew members were excited to see this beauty – a Sun Dog – when out on a recent job site!Not to get too scientific on everyone, but since you asked …A sun dog is an optical atmospheric phenomenon that causes bright spots at an angle of 22 degrees on one or both sides of the sun. It is also called a mock sun or parhelion in meteorology. Sun dogs occur as a result of the refraction or scattering of light from flat hexagonal-shaped ice crystals that are suspended in clouds.Like so many good things, the beautiful natural combination of colors doesn’t last long, so we are thrilled our One Way crew member caught it in all its glory!Photo credit: BW_Owwc
