hey!

did anybody notice the sundog that could be seen on …wait…
december 28th at 11:00 am CET that was!
(no, i don’t remember, the picture’s exif-data says so :shock:)

in case you missed it, that’s what it looked like:

seems to be a rather rare event, given that it’s caused by hexagonal ice crystals that need to have the same (=horizontal) orientation…
i was just given a scientifical explanation for this – check this site out for mor information.

besides: the german translation for sundog would be “nebensonne”
