Inexplicable/Irregular View on Moon

Last night on our way going home my daughter Kyla saw an inexplicable/irregular or strange view on moon. There is a huge circle around the moon. I donโ€™t know what the meaning of that big circle is but I felt strange because of the many terrible things happened around the world. I think it has connection on it. Anyway, just wanted to share this photo of strange moon and wanted to link it also in ABC-Wednesday. This photo is NOT mine I just grabbed it online. I tried to picture it out but the camera I used doesnโ€™t give me a better result.

Photos not mine ...Thanks to the owner ๐Ÿ™‚

Explanation (from Facebook)

The ring around the Moon is caused by the refraction of Moonlight (which of course is reflected sunlight) from ice crystals in the upper atmosphere. The shape of the ice crystals results in a focusing of the light into a ring. Since the ice crystals typically have the same shape, namely a hexagonal shape, the Moon ring is almost always the same size.

  1. There is often a ring around the moon – and they always look pretty ๐Ÿ˜‰
    I have also seen rings and stuff around the sun … a few years ago I found a really good website that explains all those sort of things – the page about moon halos is here – http://www.atoptics.co.uk/halo/circmoon.htm … and there is a whole menu of Interesting and Intriguing stuff you can go to from there (I have “lost” HOURS … days even? … looking at the stuff on that website!)

  2. It usually portends a change in the weather. I have one of the same type photo on one of my older posts. Thanks for sharing with us.

  3. I didn’t even know it was a full moon. Clouds were in. I had read that the Ides of March is about it being a full moon in the month. It was just coincidental that Caesar got killed on that date. I wonder if the circle around the moon, and the earthquakes lately, with the moon moving closer to earth over the next few days. Some kind of phenomena that happens every so often.

  4. hubby said it’s not good for someone like me (in my condition now) to go out and see the moon…especially when there is an eclipse… hehehe.. weird stuff, superstitions… visiting you here gurl!
