One guy from Russia has made a video of a strange effect in the skies – instead of one Sun there are clearly visible one the brightest and three “additional” suns..
Those are called “sun dogs”. I have only ever seen 2 at the same time.
what exacly are sun dogs?
Sun dogs are bright spots that appear on either side of the sun when there are thin layers of high ice crystal clouds otherwise known as Cirrus clouds. This can also happen at night. These are called moon dogs.

We usualy see multiple moons! LOL

Great video of Sun Dogs and an Ice Halo. Never seen 4 reflections before and such a well defined halo.
I have heard of sun dogs, but have never seen them demonstrated in real life! How neat!
