    On our drive to San Diego I noticed a prism created in the clouds and snapped a photo as we were driving.

    It's mostly called a "sun dog", sometimes they get so bright it seems like a second sun in the sky.
    It's caused by small ice crystals very high up doing a refraction thing similar to a rainbow.
    Great shots incidentally!
