People who were recently out of feathers in Inner Mongolia recently received a big surprise when they noticed “five suns” over the horizon.

A video of the phenomenon was shared by local media with the description: “What an amazing wonder! Five suns shine in the sky in northern China’s Inner Mongolia. ”

The scientific explanation of the phenomenon is an extraordinary optical illusion that requires a temperature of at least -20 ° C. Daily Mail reported on a similar incident in Russia in 2015 , explaining it is a “sham” or “parhelion”. The phenomenon has also been noticed in Minnesota and North Dakota, among others.

It is caused by small blocks of ice that remain in the air.
