(BEIJING, China.) JUST IN: Residents in the Chinese city of Fuyu, were stunned this week when they were gree ted not by the usual morning sunlight but what appeared to be three suns shining brightly as the phenomena k nown as parhelion or (Sun Dog) that is caused by the refraction of sunlight by ice crystals in Earth ’s atmosphere, which usually create glowing orbs in the sky roughly 22 degrees to left and right of the sun, at the same altitude above the horizon #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Jan.01: Two large glowing orbs appeared to be flanking the Sun on either side, dwarfing our star in the process, on the last day of 2019 in the skies above the country’s northeastern Jilin Province: Three “suns” appear on the sky over northeast China☀️☀️☀️
This spectacular view is caused by a natural phenomenon called “sun dog,” also known as mock suns or parhelia, as a result of light refraction through ice crystals. https://t.co/N31a8Um6B2 pic.twitter.com/ZbBJLYu8gB— CGTN (@CGTNOfficial) January 2, 2020: These “artificial suns” hung in the sky for roughly 20 minutes before disappearing.

Now, given that the Sun provides plenty of light and heat for our planet on its own, how could it be that we didn’t all burn up in a fiery apocalypse if two additional suns suddenly burst into the sky? It turns out the ‘extra’ suns were actually caused by an atmospheric optical phenomenon known as a sun dog, formally referred to as a parhelion.

RT World News File Photo: August 2017 annular solar eclipse as seen from Tennessee, US‘ Ring of Fire’:

A sun dog is caused by the refraction of sunlight by ice crystals in Earth’s atmosphere, which usually create glowing orbs in the sky roughly 22 degrees to left and right of the sun, at the same altitude above the horizon: The temperature needs to be quite cold, roughly 20 degrees below zero Celsius, when the Sun is still quite low in the sky, for the spectacular if mildly terrifying phenomenon to occur.
