Stunning Parhelion Spotted in North Dakota

A parhelion was spotted in the far eastern North Dakota city of Fargo on January 19.

Also known as sun dogs, parhelia are caused by sunlight shining through hexagonal ice crystals within cirrus clouds.

This video by Molly Norman captured the parhelion in all its beauty hovering above the snowy landscape. Credit: Molly Norman via Storyful
