The start of September means that autumn is just around the corner.

March 3, 2017 sundog over Tucson, Arizona – just before sunset
by Eliot Herman.


Karl Diefenderfer captured this sundog on March 6, 2017, in the skies over Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It’s what’s called a sundog, really a piece of a larger halo, called a 22-degree halo, although the entire halo might not have been visible to Karl. Sometimes only the sundogs are visible. If you do see the entire halo, notice that the sundog is red-colored towards the sun, sometimes with greens and blues beyond, as in Karl’s photo.

Have you ever woken up from a dream and the view was still there? Here is our vista in the morning from a remote house at the outskirts of San Pedro de Atacama in the northern Chile. Venus is shining high in the sky, and gorgeous volcanos shape the twilight landscape.. I hope you’ll enjoy the view!
