MOTHER NATURE

Friday, December 29, 2000

Iowans were greeted with two natural phenomenon in the past week.

Last week "sun dogs" appeared with the sun, which are created by light reflecting off ice crystals in the air for a rainbow-like effect, as shown in this photo over Storm Lake. Also, a partial solar eclipse occurred on Monday - the last Christmas solar eclipse until 2307.
