Ring around the sun


What does a ring around the sun mean? My mom says it is a change in the weather, and I believe her. Within an hour of taking this blue sky photo of the sun, the clouds rolled in and it has been overcast and raining on and off since!

I have always been told this is a 'sun dog.' A similar sight around the moon, would be a 'moon dog.' They are formed by ice crystals high in the atmosphere... nicely captured.

Everybody's dancing in a ring around the sun
Nobody's finished, we ain't even begun
So take off your shoes child, take off your hat
Try on your wings and find out where it's at!
