The impressive footage appears to show three ‘suns’ in the sky over a Russian city.

The atmospheric phenomena are more commonly known as ‘Sun Dogs’ or ‘Phantom Suns’.

The phenomenon, which takes place some six to nine miles above the earth, shows the sun with two reflections on either side.

It happens very occasionally during winter months when ice crystals are present in the air, involving two bright spots appearing either side of the actual sun.
