How cool is this?! My sister texted me, and my brother took some pictures. I guess it's called a lunar halo.

wow that's amazing - I've never seen one in real life
Yes, it is a lunar halo. I've seen one in my lifetime and it is an amazing site. That pic is excellent. Do a hub about it and post that pic!
I don't ever recall seeing a lunar halo before. Yes, I'm thinking about doing a hub. We have more photos. It was half gone 10 minutes later.
Do you know the name of the phenomena where the moon looks low and close? I've seen it twice, including one time recently.
Hey, that is really stunning. How did this happen? Thanks for this. I will try and check this out and see if I can understand this .
I've seen this a couple times before. The very first time was when I spent the night at my grandmother's house. She told me that the number of stars inside the halo meant something about the upcoming weather. I wish I could remember what it was
It was overcast. Really couldn't see any stars. Then I thought I saw one star inside the halo, but just for a second. I'm gonna check Farmer's Almanac.
this is how the natives forecast the weather. There is a circle around the moon. From the inside of the circle to the moon, however many stars are inside the circle indicates how many days it will be until impeding weather.
My papah taught me this one winter and I laughed at him horribly. There was one star inside the circle and the next morning, I could not drive the half mile to his house because we had 10 inches of snow on the ground. I walked just to apologize to him.
There are many phases of the moon that one can use to determine the weather. And they too are all correct.
Science will have a name for each I am sure.
I saw one star inside the ring very briefly, then it was gone. We didn't have rain and stormy weather here, but very close by that night.
This is a beautiful photo and it is a beauty to see one of these. If my memory serves me right, the one back then was crystal clear and maybe a little closer to the moon.
I wish I had written down the things my grandparents told me as I was growing up. They seemed a little far fetched as a kid, but now, they are right on target.
