Then I had to go to work, and witnessed some great sun dogs, but didnt have the camera! I hate working outside and seeing all the things I miss!

Very nice photo Tyler, those are well defined and very large. I'd almost count that as a triple. We've had 8 days of rain and suppose to have 10 more. I hope these storms from the Northwest somehow find their way around Nebraska miss you. Thanks

Well done Tyler! and congratulations on getting on spaceweather.com! Is that a 46 degree halo or a subralateral arc? There's a page on Les Cowley's site which explains the difference. In either case....it is a rare catch! Nice one  Smiley

Hey guys, yesterday I saw a circumzenithal arc (although it was very dim) I observed it for a few short minutes, but as I ran to grab my camera it faded enough that it didn't show up on the image very well. but it was still cool to see Smiley here is a short timelapse of the end of its life...

Nice image and a looking great animation of the halo Tyler. Looks like a bit of a pillar and hint of an UTA too. I haven't seen a CZA for some time despite looking every day. Nice one.  Smiley
