Caption: Sundog. View of a sundog (parhelia) in the Mojave Desert sky. This optical atmospheric effect is a luminous and sometimes colourful area which appears on both sides of the Sun. It is at the same elevation in the sky as the Sun. Sundogs are caused by the refraction of sunlight in hexagonal ice crystals present in the atmosphere. Photographed in California, USA.
