View Video of Sun Dog (YouTube):
Description: The sun is to the left and not in the picture. It happened when I was getting off work a little bit after 4 PM. We looked to the left and we saw the sign on the left and to the right there was this big huge white bright light. This happened on December 2nd, 2015 around a little after 4 PM in Huntington Beach, California. I have a coworker that was a witness to and I also have the short video of it too as well. My coworker also got a video.
Note: The witnesses saw the object and the sun is not in the photo. Further examination has revealed that the object is quite likely a “sun dog” which forms as the result of the reflection of the sun’s rays off of ice crystals in the high clouds in the photo. Normally sun dogs are only seen in high latitudes, but can form in other areas due to reflection of the rays off of high clouds.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
