Halo Around The Moon

The Halos around the Moon are caused by high, thin cirrus clouds drifting high above the sky. Tiny ice crystals in Earth's atmosphere create the halos. They do it by refractions and reflecting the light.


This image was taken on January 21st at 12:04am the day after the Lunar Eclipse which ended on January 20th at 10:12pm in Arizona.


Three years ago on 9/27/2015 I was able to see and take pictures of the Supermoon Lunar Eclipse under a clear sky.

This time, the partly cloudy skies lightly hindered the view however, they added a mysterious and wonderful drama to it.


During this Lunar Eclipse, I took a lot of pictures. I will post a couple of them for all of you to see.


Thank you for your comments,



Inspirational music!
