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 don’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 doesn’t give me a better result.
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.
