Phenomenon - called Parhelion

Via Flickr:
After a weekend full of work, I could made today a long long walk under shining sun and clear blue sky.
Suddenly I saw this spectrum in the single cloud. It's really no lens effect! I never have seen that before in my life.
I had to underxpose so that the effect could be seen on a photo - so the sky is dark although it was against 13:00 o'clock.
Thanks of icefoxx the phenomenon has now a name: sun dog or parhelion.
Look at the link in his comment, if you want to know more about it.
Thanks icefoxx!
