|3 Suns, Northern Mongolia
Three suns blaze in the frozen morning sky. Sundogs flank the sun, linked by a parhelic circle. Upper and lower pillars jut from the sun.
Captured by Simon Castle about 300 km NW of Murun, Mongolia on 21st December. The temperature was minus 42° Celsius.

Sundogs of this brilliance are usually made by ice crystals in the nearby air, diamond dust, although they can be formed in high cirrus too.
