What a spectacular wonder! Five suns are seen shining in the sky in N China's Inner Mongolia pic.twitter.com/SqqF2Bi99R— Beautiful China (@PDChinaLife) February 14, 2020
The video was shared by a media company in China on their twitter account with the caption: “What a spectacular wonder! Five suns are seen shining in the sky in N. China’s Inner Mongolia.”
Nevertheless, it is pretty understandable that in no way the world can experience five suns. So the practical explanation to the same is found in a report by Daily Mail.
As per the report, the phenomenon, which is also called ‘sundog’ or ‘phantom sun’ occurs due to the small pocket of ice suspended in the air. The optical illusion requires a temperate below -25 degrees celsius.
The crystals of ice, though can’t be seen with naked eyes, has this power to reflect the rays making them look like five brightly burning suns.
