faux sun

As I was driving to work this morning, out over the Palouse I saw the strangest thing. The sun was coming up over the hills, and there were very few clouds. There was a ring around the sun, but only visible in this cloud. And then, the really weird thing was that there was this big yellow glowing spot that was NOT THE SUN, but a reflection of the sun. Have you ever seen such a thing? Luckily I had my camera; this shot is not edited at all. The rainbow colors of the ring don't show up as well as I'd hoped, but this is exactly what the fake sun looked like:

Also, per my post below, if anyone reading this blog wants to contribute anything for the auction (which directly benefits Casting for Recovery), we'd love the help! Whether you sew handbags or throw pottery or, you know, you might happen to own a timeshare in Hawaii that you can't use this year! :) Please leave a comment if you have something to contribute (or ideas!). Thanks!

Dear god (and Al Gore) thank you for the internet. And smarty-pants coworkers. Amen.

I showed the photo above to a coworker and he said he'd seen a recent story in the paper about this exact thing. Check it: Sun Dog.

Don't any of the guys at work know what it might be? You should send that picture to one of the meterologists at a local tv stations and see what they say. Now I really want to know what caused that.

Maybe it was a UFO...
