Ice crystals in this cirrus cloud have formed themselves into shapes like tiny six-sided dinner plates, and as they fall down through layers of air, they tend to lay flat rather than tumbling. Catching the sunlight, they act like tiny prisms - but only in the horizontal direction, creating these "mock suns” on either side of the real one.
