Tuesday morning, Russian citizens were surprised to wake up to two more suns than usual.
Thankfully, the sun has not multiplied (although honestly, I could use the extra warmth right now). This phenomenon is a result of an optical illusion; the hexagonal ice crystals in the air refracted the light from the sun to make it seem like the sun was tripled. The invisible ice bits are a result of the extreme cold— it was around negative 23 degrees Celsius (negative 9.4 degrees Fahrenheit for fellow Americans).
