Ring Around the Sun

Shot this photo out the office window with my iPhone of the most fascinating ring around the sun.  The ring was actually a rainbow around the sun, completely circular, although I couldn't see the very bottom of it.  Googled to find out what causes it and learned that high cirrus clouds containing ice crystals will refract the light and creates the rainbow halo, also known as "Sundogs".  Quite a sight!
