Sundog in May

A Sundog at Sunset

On May 7th, 2016, I walked out on my deck and looked to the West.  I was amazed to see this Sundog sitting in the sky.  I have another picture of a Sundog though it’s during the Winter.  I checked on the net to find out a little more about Sundogs, in reading it said that the Sun has to be at a 22 degree angle and the sunlight is being refracted through icy clouds.  Being the page said, refracted through icy clouds I though it was normal to see them during Winter; that’s why I was shocked to see it in May.
