Mackinac Sun Dog

My husband and I were walking home earlier this week and were treated to a sun dog. (Can you see it? It's the little rainbow above the tree line.) I just love how my husband always seems to notice these. It's been a long time while since we've seen one - the last time being in February of 2008. The most spectacular one we've ever seen occurred just a few days earlier out over the ice. I was surprised to see one since it has been so warm here - I think our high yesterday was 55 (about 12 C.)

How about you - have you seen anything interesting lately?

I used to see those rather frequently when I lived in Grand Rapids and drove east out to my office on highway 21 on winter mornings. One of them was just phenomenal.

I haven't ever seen one in person, how beautiful!

I've only seen one, and didn't know it was called a sun dog! It was quite bright and I came home and looked it up on the internet without knowing what I was looking for, lol. Very cool!
