"Sun dog" phenomenon can create two extra suns ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_dog[ hopefully an atmospheric phenomenon rather than double-vision ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diplopia ]
Parhelia occur when the Sun or Moon shines through a thin cirrus cloud composed of hexagonal ice crystals falling with their principal axes vertical, as opposed to the halo phenomenon that occurs when the principal axes are randomly arranged in a plane perpendicular to the Sunís or Moonís rays. The red end of the spectrum, being bent the least, appears on the inside, with the blue, when visible, appearing on the outside. Parhelia most commonly appear during the winter in the middle latitudes.
... I've contacted the taxi company ...
And what will you say if the lady's photo only show one sun Pete, although you and that lady both will swear to that you saw two?
If you were looking through he window of a taxi whose engine was running, (vibrating the windows), the effect may vehicular rather than atmospheric.
[w ere the two suns close together ?, less than a sun-diameter apart ? ]
I was on 93N at about 5:35 last night, and I saw the rainbow in the cloud, but I must have been too late to see the second sun.
