Contrail precipitate sundog
Posted by: biff4ugo, 3:32 PM GMT on February 27, 2012
There were two very different sundogs in the sky this day and time. I took picutures of both of them. This one in the Contrail precipitation was much farther from the sun, and fleeting. It definitely shows a difference in how the altered clouds handle light.
This broad luminescence in ice precipitation from jet exhaust occured simultaneously but at a different distance and angle from a regular sun dog.
Jets were poking holes in the stratus layer all over the place.
