Quite the unique captures of what seems to be a halo surrounding the moon recently. Taana Blom captured these shots. I think her second shot is the coolest, though, with a jet slicing through the photo, leaving a line as it goes. She said she ordered a metal print of this photo and can’t wait to see how it turned out. I’m sure there’s a scientific explanation for what makes this happen, so I checked on Google and found this information from Halo.

The moon's halo or lunar halo is an optical illusion that causes a large bright ring to surround the moon. This striking and often beautiful halo around the moon is caused by the refraction of moonlight from ice crystals in the upper atmosphere.”
Interesting, indeed. Don’t worry, there won’t be a test on this later, but now you can explain what causes this phenomenon and be the smart one in the crowd.

Speaking of the “smart one”, I would have to say that would be a good title for Steve Brimm, as he’s figured out that “watching the ice melt” is a good way to recoup and recharge after a busy week. This is another one that you’ll want your speakers turned up, so you can hear the waves washing onto the shore. Pay close attention and you’ll also see the drips from the melting icicles!

These pictures are beyond awesome. WOWOWOW! Just

My Gram ALWAYS said "if there are rings around the
moon, that's how many storms are left"....and we
have "The Big One" coming this weekend!

Seriously, these are just stunning pictures! WTG

I can stare at the moon for hours. It reminds me
of my late wife as I used to call her "my little
moon face". And that video of the frosty shore
line was just great.
