Lunar corona


Beth texted me last night and asked if I could see the moon?

I went outside and the halo was really incredible, just magnificent and farther away from the moon than I can ever recall seeing. Took up about a third of the night sky.

I wish I had brought a good camera home. Maybe I will take one home tonight and try to get a proper shot.The cell phone does not cut it.

Hopefully we will get a reoccurrence tonight. I think it has to with the amount of moisture in the atmosphere. Whatever the cause, it was really something.

Ice crystals in the atmosphere. The diameter of the ring is relative to the altitude of the crystals.
