Sun dog From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search For other uses, see Sun dog (disambiguation). Very bright sundogs in Fargo, North Dakota. Note the halo arcs passing through each sundog. A crimson sundog in Camaya Coast, Mariveles, Bataan at the left side of the setting sun. Note that the other sundog (at the right side) is obstructed from view.  A sun dog or sundog (scientific name parhelion, plural parhelia, from Greek parēlion (παρήλιον) from παρά (beside) + ἥλιος (sun), “beside the sun”; also called a mock sun[1] or a phantom sun[2]) is an atmospheric phenomenon that creates bright spots of light in the sky, often on a luminous ring or halo on either side of the sun.[3]  Sundogs may appear as a colored patch of light to the left or right of the sun, 22° distant and at the same distance above the horizon as the sun, and in ice halos. They can be seen anywhere in the world during any season, but they are not always obvious or bright. Sundogs are best seen and are most conspicuous when the sun is low.
