Who doesn’t love seeing a sundog? This sundog had the added bonus of an airplane flying nearby, deftly captured by photographer Sculptor Lil on Flickr , who wondered if the people on the plane could see it. Too bad the airplane didn’t fly through it, like the sundog encounter the Solar Dynamics Observatory had during launch.

    So what’s the difference between a sundog and a glory? Is it that the sundog doesn’t require the shadow of the object on a cloud?
