Moon Dogs In Tucson

Last night I got home and noticed a couple of Moon dogs in the sky so I ran in and got my camera. Fortunately, I was fast enough and they were still there.

Moon dogs are the same phenomena as the more common Sun dogs. Moon dogs are more rare since the Moon just isn’t as bright and you need a fairly full Moon to get them. They are usually dimmer than Sun dogs and usually appear white. In the pics I took, the exposure was long enough to see a little color.

It was nice to finally photograph Moon dogs!
