One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

If you were looking east just before 7:00 this morning you saw this curious sunrise
I think it's a "sun dog" though I had thought they usually came in threes, with the other two bracketing the column rising from the sun itself. If it was a sundog, its created by ice crystals dispersed low in the atmosphere. Anyway, sun dog or not it was beautiful.
