This unique phenomenon occured in February, 2007 in Kazakhstan in settlement Shubarkuduk.


Here is a video of this interesting event:

I think it's a Mix between Halo and Sundogs

Halo

There are many types of optical halos, but they are mostly caused by ice crystals in cold cirrus clouds located high (5–10 km, or 3–6 miles) in the upper troposphere.

Sundogs

They are often bright white patches of light looking much like the sun or a comet and are occasionally confused with those phenomena.

Cool

This type of thing happening in the past probably inspired a lot of legends
