A mysterious halo of light surrounding the sun appeared in the sky above Russia over the weekend. The atmospheric phenomenon known as a "Sun Dog" was visible in Moscow on January 19, and captured by Valera Yangurazov in a video clip shot from a metro train. The phenomenon occurs when light is refracted through ice crystals in the atmosphere; this particular halo effect from the sun was filmed in temperatures of minus 20 degrees Celsius.
