    Please see the image I took last evening, 27 Aug 2013, at about 2020hrs. The Sun is to the right of the image perhaps about 20deg from the colour in the sky.I assume it is some sort of refraction effect but I would be interested in the real reason.many thanks David

    Although I cannot view the link /image I will guess at it being a sundog,often found in pairs at ca 22.5 degrees from the sun, one at each side. A Google under sundog or parhelia should pull up plenty of information on their nature.Hope this is of some help 🙂

    Sorry but I seem to be having a problem with posting an image. Thanks for the tip on the sun dog. The angle looks about right. I will look it up.David

    Hi David,sorry, file uploads are severely restricted at the moment.If you can post to another web-site, you could post it as a linked image here (that also circumvents the image dimensions and file size restrictions).Regards, Callum
