As the sun went down, the sun dogs grew more faint.
I like looking at the sky and watching clouds and sunsets. It's not very often that I get to see more unusual phenomena like sun dogs, but when it happens, it's quite exciting. If you live in a warmer climate, you probably never get to see them. I hope you enjoyed seeing them vicariously if that is the case! If you want to see more sun dogs, there are some great pictures online, including this one from Wikipedia, which is actually taken in central Iowa, showing both sundogs. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SunDog.jpg
