Incredible Video Shows Three ‘Suns’ Over Russian Skies

Now here’s something you don’t see everyday.
In January, people of Kazan, Russia, woke up to an extraordinary sight of three suns overlooking the city. Onlookers were amazed – and baffled – by what they saw. Watch the weird display below:
Did two new suns magically enter our solar system? Scientists say no.
According to NASA, the phenomenon is called “sundogs,” and occurs when sunlight passes through ice crystals that are falling in the Earth’s atmosphere. When the sunlight goes through the crystals, it creates a “mock sun” deflecting roughly 22 degrees on either side of the real sun, thus creating three flares in the sky.
Usually speaking, sundogs occur only in winter months.

The rare phenomenon stirred the Internet into a frenzy as many people were confused yet intrigued by the rare sight, posting videos and photos of the event.
Although Earth doesn’t have three suns, there is a planet light years away that actually closely resembles this occurrence.
Our universe can be very trippy sometimes.
