Early Monday, phenomena known as sundogs could be seen as the sun rose, creating the illusion of not one, but three suns.
"A sun dog (or sundog), mock sun or phantom sun, scientific name parhelion (plural parhelia), is an atmospheric phenomenonthat creates bright spots of light in the sky, often on a luminous ring or halo on either side of the sun.
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."Plainfield Patch fans shared pics of the amazing sight on Facebook; click through the gallery to see the beautiful photos they captured.
