I heard on the news that there was going to be some kind of lunar halo happening. I wasn't going to check it out at all because we rarely see any of the things they report on the news. DS and I happened to be sitting on the couch, I could see out the kitchen window and realized that it was awful bright out. I sent DS out on the porch to see if he could see the halo. He was all excited and motioned for me to come out and see it too. It was so beautiful. The whole sky was lit up. I ran back in and grabbed my camera to see if I could capture it to later show DH which was fast asleep. The above picture was taken by me. It's not as beautiful as what we saw with the naked eye but, its still stunning. I'm assuming that the straight line across just below the moon is the vapors left behind from an airplane. We are on one of the main paths that is traveled frequently, we see such lines daily if its not cloudy.
I'm so excited that I can share this with everyone. I have a few theroies of my own as to why it has happened on such a night although they are not scientific they however trump all that any meterologist could ever possibly come up with. Mine are so much better. We'll leave it at that.
If you didn't get a chance to go out and enjoy such a sight maybe it will happen again and you'll have better luck. I know some of my friends said it was cloudy in their part of the world. ;(
