Vermonters wake up to sun dogs in the sky

Posted: Updated:
CABOT, Vt. -

You may have seen a cool optical illusion Friday morning in the skies over Vermont.

They're called sun dogs. They're an atmospheric phenomenon that happens when sunlight refracts through ice crystals high in the atmosphere. Think of them as something similar to rainbows.

These sun dog photos were taken in Cabot.
