A rare phenmenon, especially in southern climes.
In 70 years of observing the sky, I have only encounterd
it twice: the sun's seldom seen off-sider, the Sun Dog or parhelion.
Mainly seen when the sun is low in the sky, there can be four of these
at the points of the compass around the sun. On very rare occasions
they can mirror the sun and form their own pups as well.
Coloured parhelia are formed by light refracted through ice crystals.
If you find it hard to spot, it's the tiny rainbow in the centre
of the picture!
The road home.
With my trusty camera of course.
