A rare phenomenon called ‘sun dog’ occurs when ice crystals are formed in the Earth’s atmosphere, after which they reflect sunlight and appear to be the shining sun. It is believed to be the longest sun dog of recent years.
Internet users were surprised after watching the video. A Twitter user wrote, “As I doubt many times … China has everything.” Such an incident was seen in the Chinese city of Fuyu in January. Then two additional suns appeared in the sky for 20 minutes. This phenomenon requires a wide range of circumstances.
