Too bad I can't get a picture of it. But maybe, some you might be able too. This ring is like huge. Almost like a rainbow and would be a perfect photo shot for an experienced space photographer.

See if one of you all can get a snapshot of it. Post it in here if you can get the ring. I would love to see it.

Looks awesome.

Do you have a layer of high, thin cirrus clouds overhead your area?


A rainbow is produced when sunlight is refracted through water droplets - [color=gold]A similar effect is produced when moon light refracts through ice crystals.


home.hiwaay.net...

Cirrus clouds are basically ice crystals. Sometimes they are very thin, and layered....sheer, and see through. More like a haze than a proper cloud...so, at night in the dark, you may not realize they are there, until they show up as a ring around the Moon...due to its brightness, as explained in that article (and many others).

Here are some photos available from Google.

Of course, elsewhere in the World there will be no cirrus...or, it will be overcast and raining.

Or, it will be daylight......


(...or, the Moon will not be in the sky at all....).

I wanna see this SOO BAD, but I can't open up the garage, it's too late, plus I can't see the moon from any of the windows and it's pretty cloudy. This sucks. I've only gotten a chance to see the moon with a halo around it once in my life. It was completely stunning!

Doesn't a halo around the moon mean that rain is to come?

By the way, there’s an old weather saying: “ring around the moon means rain soon.” There’s truth to this saying, because high cirrus clouds often come before a storm.


I guess so lol

No, it's actually clear, but it is windy out. I see very little cloud coverage.

I'd love to help you too, but here in NW Florida, I'm not seeing a ring. I did however see one a few weeks ago. Hopefully help is on the way...

high altitude ice crystals. I love it when the moon looks like that.

It's fairly cloudy in my area at the moment. I will be interested to see a picture if anybody manages it. I don't think I've ever seen anything like what you're describing.

It's pretty common a moon halo, moondog or moon ring.
Is it something like this?

You can't be serious right? I love how ice-crystals can explain everything.

edit: haha, well apparently ice-crystals do cause moon rings, like this one (from one of the links posted above):



Did it look like that OP?

I just went out with my camera, but I didn't see a ring around the moon as described, so I decided not to take a picture..

I could go back out and take one anyway if you guys really want...

Well yes.

A lunar halo is caused by the refraction of moonlight by hexagonal-plate-shaped ice crystals in cirrus or cirrostratus clouds

I took some pictures but I don't think they came out at all. I got the moon but, I don't think it got the ring.

Maybe if you squint your eyes you can see it from afar.
