Today's weather trivia: 23 December

2008: Residents outside in the midday sun in Prince George, SK, were treated
to the unusual sight of sundogs in the southern and southwestern sky.
Sundogs are optical phenomena caused by ice crystals suspended in the
atmosphere. The hexagonal-shaped ice crystals refract the sunlight, casting
a 22-degree-angle halo from passing through the crystals.
