Moon Dog

Post by ShiftyMutt »

Anyone else see this last night? A giant halo around the moon formed from crystals. Had no idea it was called a Moon Dog. Eerie but beautiful.

<edit> this is not MY photo but another local. The pic I took didn’t come out this clear.

Was the cross effect just through the lens or did you see that too?

Just the lens. The tiny green dot must be a star not seen with the necked eye or the lens too because I didn’t see that either.

By the way.. if you’re not taking advantage of seeing Mars without a scope, it won’t be visible like this again until 2035. Compared to the moon it really does look Orange.

Been great planet viewing lately. In addition to Mars, Jupiter and Saturn were doing a dance with the crescent moon a few weeks ago...
