Sun dog in Lake of the Ozarks

An uncommon atmospheric phenomenon shone next to the sun, above the Lake on Tuesday.

As the sun approached the horizon at the end of an uncommonly warm November day, a "sun dog" could be seen. The photo above was taken near Horseshoe Bend.

Sun dogs are also known as "mock suns" or "phantom suns" and are created when sunlight reflects off ice crystals in the atmosphere. They can appear on both sides of the sun, often when it is close to the horizon.
