i thought it was a sundog as well. apparently, sundogs when present appear as intense concentrations of light to either side of a sun halo (22 degrees in this case).

click here for example pix of sundogs.

Dave,

just might send them in. might be the last though 'cause i think i blew a hole in the ccd. ha!

Kyle,

i thought i'd run a website where i just wait for people to ask me questions. while they wait i'd do the research on the internet. dunno how i'd make money on that though. wait a minute... that makes me a librarian... yikes!!!
