Halo Around the Moon

Halo around the Full Moon (09.14.2008) while TAing for Astr313. The 6 inch tube is on the right. A plane had recently flown by the Moon. There is also a bright patch along the halo to the left. This is due to water structures in the atmosphere.

 

We didn't get any observing in, but this was quite cool to see.
