22 Degree Lunar Halo and Lunar Corona

I saw the moon surrounded by a 22 degree lunar halo and lunar corona last night! I used my 8 megapixel Olympus FE-250 digital camera to take images of the phenomena. Sadly, this camera has poorly resolved the halo and the corona. Nevertheless, these images would serve as remembrance of my observation. ūüôā

  1. Hi, i like your pic. Your lucky you got a shot. We were also gazing at the sky last night but sadly we didnt have any cams on hand. We thought it was a ufo hovering the sky haha.

  2. Thanks, JC. Where did you see the halo? ūüôā
