Science - Meteorology
Additional field(s): Astronomy & Space
English term or phrase: parhelion
Definition from Weatherdudes' weather glossary:
The scientific name for sun dogs. Either of two colored luminous spots that appear at roughly 22 degrees on both sides of the sun at the same elevation. They are caused by the refraction of sunlight passing through ice crystals. They are most commonly seen during winter in the middle latitudes and are exclusively associated with cirriform clouds. They are also known as mock suns.

Example sentence(s):
  • Actually, this engine's helpful occultation of the Sun allowed for a crisp, clean view of not only the parhelion but a portion of a 22 degree solar halo and the a parhelic circle (extended tail of the sundog). epod.usra.edu
  • Sometimes, the Sunset is along with two colored luminous apparitions more or less contrasted. Located on the border of the halo located at 22 degrees of the Sun, on the right and on the left of it, they are called "parhelions" or more frequently "sundogs". pixheaven.net
  • The parhelia had been displaying arcs all day, sometimes quite lengthy ones. In this picture, the parhelic arc is rather short, but it's clear that the parhelion hasn't yet quite connected with the 22 degree halo. The sun was still too high. flickr

Yalancı Güneş(ler)


Definition from itusozluk.com:
atmosferdeki küçük buz parçacıklarının yansıtma etkisi ve cirrus türü bulutlarında yardımıyla oluşan optik bir yanılsamadır. şöyle ki: güneşin her iki yanında veya sadece bir yanında, aynı yükseltide 22 derece veya daha fazla açıyla görülen, aynı parlaklık ve renkteki yalancı güneş/ler oluşmaktadır.

Example sentence(s):
  • Oluşması gereken şartlar 22 derece buz aylası ile aynıdır fakat Yalancı Güneş'e Güneş alçakta iken daha sık rastlanır. Yalancı Güneş Güneş'in sağında veya solunda gökkuşağı renklerinde ortaya çıkar. Genellikle Güneş'ten yaklaşık 22 derece(bir karış) uzakta olmasına rağmen daha uzakta da görülebilir. Yalancı Güneş'in Güneş'e bakan kısmı kırmızı diğer kısımları da gökkuşağındaki gibidir. 22o buz aylası ve yalancı güneş'in görünme sıklığı gökkuşağından daha fazla olmasına rağmen halk arasında falza bilinmemektedir. 22o buz aylasında olduğu gibi bu da Ay'ın etrafında görülebilmektedir. - gokyuzu.org
