Of an ice rainbow -20c no wind and there were sundogs
In the other direction I did some research and found only
2 references of it happening and no photos

I am sure you are right therecold is -20c / -4f and really cold I have experienced

-45c / -49f you must have camera tucked between layers at all times and then

I recommend putting it into a baggie when you come in till it warms or you have

Condensation hell

no, we are way too far south. it's something i've always wanted to see tho.. mid-bottom of your pic tho looks like gemini, the twins, castor(top) and pollux tho. they'd be about the right height for your latitude.
