Both Sundogs

Usually the cirrus is patchy so only one sundog is seen at a time.

A clear afternoon with thin cirrus provided this pair of bright sundogs. These were followed by a bright circumzenithal arc.

Closeup of the right sundog. The wispy cirrus seems to be making a greater contribution than the more mottled background.
