Flick through the links - there's all manner of amazing variations, most of which we'll never see. I think they're more common in arctic regions.
Little wonder the ancients saw them as portents!
While mostly known and often quoted for being the oldest colour depiction of the city of Stockholm, Vädersolstavlan (Swedish; "The Sundog Painting", literally "The Weather Sun Painting") is arguably also one of the oldest depictions of a sun dog. The morning April 20th 1535, the skies over the city for two hours were filled with white circles and arcs crossing the sky, while additional suns appeared around the sun. The phenomenon quickly resulted in rumours of an omen of God's forthcoming revenge on King Gustav Vasa (1496-1560) for having introduced Protestantism during the 1520s and for being heavy-handed with his enemies allied with the Danish king.

The frequency of earthquakes hasn't increased nor the frequency of other natural disasters. Wars? There hasn't been a time in world history where there weren't wars being fought somewhere on the planet. Again, the frequency hasn't changed all that much (in fact, it might be lower). People imagine a lot of things when statistically they'd be dead wrong. How would something completely natural (frequency doesn't matter) be attributed to a supernatural cause.
