Solar display was created by Conor

Did anyone else see the amazing solar display today. 2 sundogs, halo and upper tangent arc?

I went for a walk out in the country today with my camera but i only seen 1 sundog and some nice crepuscular rays. Images to follow. Was the display good?

I assume it happened earlier?

Yeah Dave I saw that too. Luckily enough I was out with my 350D's and managed to get a nice shot. I think it's the same cocker spaniel sun dog :lol:

Ah Lighten Up Conor! I'm sure they are appreciative of your efforts to tell the rest of us of your observations. Its great to read them now and again!

I think that (on my own personal level), they just keep seeing sun dogs and associated phenomenae from you, and are just having a joke.

A joke based on 2 parts, if I may:

1) Sun dog, halo, arc, or even a rainbow, is hard for some of us see, as it is firstly hard to even see the sun in these isles, particularly yesterday and today!

2) You and Martin have shown so many atmospheric phenomenae here, that I suppose, well, if you've seen one sun dog, you will, in fact, see them all!

As a comparable argument, we all see meteors every night, but we don't post back here each day about them...

That's a nice dog in the sun Johnno. But not the same one I'm afraid. So between the pair of us, I guess we saw two dogs in the sun. The same sun though. Wonder if they were 24 deg apart though?

Conor - sorry if you feel we're taking the Mick... Well, actually, I guess we are but not with you personally. Just having a bit of fun amongst friends.

As it happens, the weather here has been miserable - I think I'm suffering cabin fever. I've had one clear night in 15...

Sorry... :oops:

It seems I'm a bit of a latecomer to this thread, and to be honest, I almost wish I had never opened it. You ... imbeciles ... have ruined my evening. All evening I'll be in a bad mood, bothered and upset by the SHEER ignorance I have seen displayed here.

That's a SPRINGER SPANIEL, not a lame little cocker spaniel. You people need to get in more! There better be an apology forthcoming or I'll, I'll, I'll ... resign ... see if I don't!
