Nothing Much: Just The Moon and Winter Halo | Image hosted by

According to Wikipedia:

"A moon ring, also known as a winter halo, is a phenomenon that usually appears in conjunction with a full moon. There appears to be a whitish ring, approximately 10 to 20 times the size of the moon, surrounding the moon and centered on it. It is caused by refraction of the light from the full moon in the ice particles floating in the clouds, as opposed to a rainbow, where light refracts in the water vapor that makes up the clouds."

Last night, the winter halo caught the attention of Twitterjaya peeps including yours truly. Naturally, I snapped a picture of it which coincidentally shined brightly right above my home. You only need one word to describe it: "HUGE".
