If it was a lens flare, then there would be no glare once the clouds move over from the moon, in daytime, I can see it being a lens flare from all the light. but not during the night.edit on 9-8-2011 by Manhater because: (no reason given)
Flare manifests itself in two ways: firstly as a haze across the image, making the image look "washed out" by reducing contrast and color saturation (adding light to dark image regions, and adding white to saturated regions, reducing their saturation), and secondly as visible artifacts. Flare is particularly caused by a very bright light sources either in the image – which produces visible artifacts – or shining into the lens but not in the image – which produces a haze.

Lens flare. It disappears because the cloud moves in front of the Moon. Why do people keep falling for this?
