Another Sundog! Before entering the doors of the Geophysical Institute yesterday morning, I turned around to find transparent, rainbow-like colored arcs circling around the sun. Sunlight as bright as the glowing reaction of magnesium and heat, I was unable to take any photos. With squinted eyes, I managed to observe these beautiful halos. In my January 24th journal entry, I provided a brief explanation and several links to Parhelias, also known as Sundogs or Halos. This morning, Martin gave me a website with photos that appeared on the Alaska weather homepage. Click here to see photos. http://climate.gi.alaska.edu/brian/sundog.html
