Lisa Phillips (M.S.-ATM 2010) received a first place award in the amateur division from the Black Hills Chapter of the American Meteorological Society for this snapshot she took of sundogs. A sundog, technically known as a parhelion, is a halo phenomenon consisting of either of two colored luminous spots that appear at points 22° on both sides of the sun and at the same elevation as the sun. It is caused by refraction of sunlight by ice crystals.
