FENOMENA UNIK: Langit Antartika bagaikan ada 'mata besar' di angkasa. Fenomena itu dikenali sebagai 'sun dog' – atau 'parhelion'.

Lebih menarik fenomena jarang-jarang berlaku sempat dirakamkan seorang fotojurnalis, Christopher Miche yang mengambil keadaan fenomena itu berlaku semasa lawatannya.

Dia merakamkan fenomena itu ketika beberapa kilometer dari South Pole bersama Syarikat Antarctic Logistics and Expeditions iaitu syarikat yang menyediakan perkhidmatan sains tourism.

- The phenomenon is known as a sun dog – or parhelion – and it happens when there are hexagonal ice crystals in the air, tending to float horizontally because in that position, they refract light so that it appears there are two other baby suns flanking the real sun. 

When crystals are more vertical, they create a halo around the original sun.
