Sun Dog Halo Moscow Magnificent Sun Dog Halo Caught on Film in Moscow (VIDEO)

One commuter in Moscow was lucky enough to catch a magnificent “sun dog” on film.

A sun dog (or sundog), or plural parhelia, is an atmospheric phenomenon that creates bright spots of light in the sky, often on a luminous ring or halo on either side of the sun.

Sundogs may appear as a colored patch of light to the left or right of the sun, 22 degrees distant and at the same distance above the horizon as the sun, and in ice halos. They can be seen anywhere in the world during any season, but they are not always obvious or bright. Sundogs are best seen and are most conspicuous when the sun is low.

Today (19 Jan 2014 in the morning), when I came to subway I saw strange effect around The Sun and decided to record that optical phenomenon on my videocamera. Temperature in the street is -20 degrees Celsius.
