Amazing

So, it’s 11:58 and I’m about to say good-night to facebook when a friends status says to run right out and look at the moon, that it would be worth the bracing cold………and I did……and it was……and it looked like this- actually much cooler than this, but this is the closest picture I could find. It looks like the clouds have opened in a perfect circle, a rainbow is around the edges of those clouds, and then smack in the middle is the moon! Anyone know what this is called?

I did see an unusual moon last night but it didn't look exactly like this. It was unusual enough for me to take notice though.

Cool! sorry I missed this. I think it is a circular halo seen when colder, rainy weather is approaching. It's caused by ice crystals in wispy clouds. When I went to find out more about that it said that a 22 degree halo has red on the inside and blue on the outside of the rainbow.
