Sky Watch : Blue Skies and a Sun Dog

Was it a kind of the sun's reflection? The sun position was on the left.
Note: I know what it was now. It's a sun dog/phantom sun/mock sun :an atmospheric phenomenon that creates bright spots of light in the sky. The sunlight refracted in the ice crystals in the thin layer of cloud. Thanks for informing me :)  

Both captured at the same time; but different sides.

Wow, a sun-dog! Was there just one or more, there is a possibility of four surrounding the sun. It is sunlight refracted in the ice crystals in the thin layer of cloud.
