just googled it found this

 

Ring Around The Moon

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.

 

Less typical are the halos that may be produced by different angles in the crystals. They can create halos with an angle of 46 degrees.

HOLY SHIT.

 

 

About 4-5 years ago I remember walking outside to this sight. I never heard anything about it and was completely amazed by what I saw.

 

It looked exactly like the pictures complex linked - http://images.google.com/images?hl=e...-8&sa=N&tab=wi

 

Pretty good to have some closure on that... I never looked into it and distinctly remember being high as shit.

It's called a carona. We had a really good one in the Bay Area about a week ago. It's lightweight visible right now too... but last weeks was money.

2 questions for you

 

1) how old are you?

If you are under lets say 15 ignore question two and isn't it past your bedtime.

 

2) Do you live in a cave?

 

If you answered yes to question 2 your lack of knowing about a ring around the moon or this thing called google is understandable and will be excused. If you are under 15 isn't it past your bedtime and there is this really great site called google to answer all your stupid questions for you. please go there from now on.

 

Otherwise

I actually saw this about last year. It was really cool. I saw this huge ring around the moon and was like, woah that would be fucking awesome if it was some cloaked alien ship or something.

the sailor says rain tomorrow, high cirrus form into ice crystals and make a halo showing approaching moisture, sometimes it happens around the sun as well. I heard somewhere that the light is refracted at 22 degrees but I dunno if there's truth in that.

 

*edit: sometimes it just means high level moisture in a passing system and you won't get rain but more often than not it's gonna be soggy.

We got a really good photo yesterday of the sun with a massive halo around it with what looked like a second sun on the lhs of the halo. Was surreal. Will post pics when I get back
