Sundog Sighting in Newport!

August 4, 2012

Earlier this week guests aboard Heritage saw a Sundog during their evening sail!  No, we are not talking about the four legged kind of a dog. We are talking about a Parhelion, commonly called a Sundog. Meaning “beside the sun,” Parhelion phenomenon is where the sun shines through ice crystals in cirrus clouds creating a partial halo around the sun.  Check out our Newport Sundog photos and read more about Sundogs here.  It is amazing what you can see on a 12 Meter sail!
