Rising Moon Halo

    Newer Older

    Night shot taken from the summit of mount Chaberton (3,131 m) on October 20th, 2011.
    At the horizon you can see the halo generated by the moon before rising.

    A huge bank of clouds and mist was hiding the world below...

    Two cities are most visible, respectively on the right: Sestriere (2.035 m), the main venue during the 2006 Winter Olympic Games, and Cesana (1.040 m) that shines like a diamond necklace :-)
    On top of the mountain between the two cities is visible a tiny dot of light, it's the cable car station Fraiteve (2.702 m).

    This is essentially a landscape of clouds and stars, though the constellations begin to be less visible due to the coming moon... however in the night sky can still be clearly distinguished a few constellations: Auriga, Perseus, Aries, Cetus, Pleiades, and, last but not least, planet Jupiter.
