Today's lesson: sundogs

What are they?

A peculiar celestial phenomenon in which the ice crystals in the air refract the light of the sun so as to give the impression of two 'mini-suns' or sundogs on either side of the real sun aligned horizontally. Also, usually a ring of light that might have the colours of the rainbow in it.

Noah may have seen this if the Ark hit an iceberg.

It only happens when it is crazy cold. Like, um... TODAY!
