Moon, Jupiter and Lunar Halo

Thanks to Edward, I was able to see another Lunar HaloūüėÄ.

The halo was huge and beautiful. I saw it at 10:00 pm last night and took images of it until 11:00 pm. My fellow Astrosoc members saw it as early as 8:30 pm.

My first observation of a lunar halo was last December 2007. You can see my images of the December lunar halo here. This link also includes a brief discussion of the lunar halo phenomenon.

Here are my images of the recent lunar halo:

The images were shot with the Olympus FE-250 Digital Camera mounted on a tripod.

Currently feeling: depressed
