Evening Contrail Sundogs

Much of the cirrus on this afternoon was formed by old contrails, though this particular sundog may be in ordinary cirrus.

This intense sundog seems to be associated with the broad contrail.

It could be in a smaller contrail below the large contrail but is probably in virga falling from it.

Around the same time the sundog on the other side of the sun was also associated with a contrail.

This one clearly shows individual streaks of virga falling from the contrail.
