Who wouldn’t envy Chuck Clark of Canada for having a frequent view of the sundog from his window? I surely do!
A sundog is an atmospheric phenomenon which appears as bright spots of light beside the Sun. It is caused by the bending of light rays passing through ice crystals in high and cold cirrus clouds.
Chuck captured what he said as a “common sight” from his balcony in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada across the street from the Canadian Museum of Nature on January 17, 2004. He used a Sony Mavica CD1000 camera.
Check out Clark’s Flickr page for more photos.
