Things You Can Find on Wikipedia

Did you know Wikipedia has a featured picture of the day? I wonder if this happens every day... I am guessing it does... Anyways, here is today's (I think it's really cool!):

And here is what Wikipedia has to say about it:
Pronounced sun dogs on both sides of a setting sun in New Ulm, Minnesota. Note the halo arcs passing through each. Sun dogs are an atmospheric optical phenomenon primarily associated with the reflection or refraction of sunlight by small ice crystals making up cirrus or cirrostratus clouds. Often, two or more can be seen on opposite sides of the sun simultaneously.
