The scientific explanation of the phenomenon is cited as an elaborate optical illusion that requires temperatures of -20 degrees. According to Daily Mail, a 'sundog' or 'phantom sun' occurs due to small pockets of ice suspended in the air.
As the post went viral, Twitter users flooded the comments s section of the video with their reactions.
A user wrote, "And only one is extraterrestrial."
Another wrote, "It's a sun dog, whippee!"
"Is this because of all the pollution?" asked one user.
A post read, "Yes. The end of the day, a lovely sunset. I think that's what it was."Click for more trending news
