At around noontime today, my officemates and I marvelled at an interesting sight from up above. It was a rainbow-colored halo that surrounded the sun. I didn't know something like that could occur but it did, and it was pretty cool.
That halo was said to be a parhelion, more commonly known as a sun dog. Scientists explain that a sun dog is caused by the reflection or refraction of sunlight by plenty of small ice crystals that comprise cirrus or cirrostratus clouds.
It was my first time to see a sun dog for real and it was a really unique sight to behold.
The sun dog was only seen in Cebu, though.
