I saw this earlier this evening, is this a sun dog? It was only visible one side and not the other.

Sorry I should have been clearer - the sun dog isn't called a giants tooth its the little snippet of rainbow on the edge. I've never seen a sun dog - good catch. Although I did see the moon version two years ago. Whats that called I wonder? Does it even have a name?

I think I'm going to take a break from posting for a while. I'm turning into the astronomy equivalent of Private Pike... ??

Please don't, life would be duller on the forum without you :)
