Report:

  • Ed spotted a Sundog and pointed it out.  Looked like a bright piece of a Rainbow to the left of the Sun.  Could see the small rainbow 'fragment' clearly but the 22 degree halo didn't pop out visually.
  • Halo appeared in image.
  • It has been said that Sundogs indicate a change in weather.  This was definitely the case here.
  • Was my first Sundog observed.
