(NOTE: When selecting/making up a noun for "perplex," be sure to consult Urban Dictionary first because "perplexion" is ill-advised. FAIL.)
In my happy dreamful state, I reached behind me and looked as far into the back sky as i could when I saw a curious phenomenon. I saw a rainbow. But not just any rainbow but an almost circular rainbow on a non-rainy day. Nowhere near a rainy day. And it circumferenced the sun, as far as i could tell, which was hidden from view behind some leafy trees. It was pretty glorious and i wasn't sure at all what i was looking at. My view was upside down but I got my phone and took an awkward photo at--i hoped-- the thing in the sky, but it was too bright to see on my phone.
I sent the photo to Scientist Sean who told me it was a "Sun dog!" (he was excited about it). I thought, that's the worst name ever for something so celestial and didn't think much else. It wasn't until later when he showed me google images for sun dogs that i gasped. Go ahead and do it. Are you KIDDING ME? What is going on here?? I felt like I had made First Contact, catching a glimpse of alien happenings that normally go unseen, events too beautiful for mere earthlings. Who else has seen this?? I demand you tell me. Why have i never heard of it? And will it ever happen again? Weather like that is already suspect, but now I'm beginning to think it really was a dream all along.
