Ivelyn text me right after my lunch, she said go see the sun.
As I know this appears the second time. Anyone know what phenomena is this?
[thanks Ivelyn for the news.]

[update]: i got replied on this, it is called the sundog, A sun dog or sundog (scientific name parhelion, plural parhelia, for "beside the sun") is a common bright circular spot on a solar halo. It is an atmospheric optical phenomenon primarily associated with the reflection or refraction of sunlight by small ice crystals making up cirrus or cirrostratus clouds. Often, two sun dogs can be seen (one on each side of the sun) simultaneously. [wikipedia]
