Moon Halo in New Mexico!

Recommended Posts

Rare? Ive been seeing it for years. Maybe its from the space cloud left from passing comets which I beleive we are passing through at the moment which is making it easier to see this.

Moon's nearly at perigree for the year, no wonder it is bright. The ring is caused by high altitude ice crystals which form when there is a lot of volcanoes around....or chemtrails kek.

 When I first became aware of this phenomenon, a few years ago, I researched it, and it was definitely called "rare" at that time; you won't find that description now on  Wikipedia and the like… I believe it has become more common and I'm wondering why?  (You may have noticed as of recently, they have added many different types of clouds; things are changing … )  Personally, I'm up there in years, and I have never seen a moon halo,  I have seen a sun halo many times now, but only since January of 2015.  

 

Here are some descriptions from a few years ago calling it "rare":

 (3/2/15)

Adrian Fitzgerald from the Bureau of Meteorology at the East Sale RAAF base said he was sent a photo of the phenomenon by keen photographers Erin and Rick.

"It's rare for two reasons," Adrian told ABC Gippsland's Mornings program.

"We require cirrus stratus (cloud) for that to occur. That's the high level, light, thin, veil cloud you see during the day.

"That's not a common cloud."

Adrian said the cloud was made up of ice crystals rather than water.

"The ice crystals act like prisms and they defract the light in such a way that you get the ring," he said.

"It's also even more uncommon at night because you need a high moon illumination, so we were close to a full moon on Saturday.

"You had the event of a full moon occurring and cirrus stratus at the same time."

"A rare meteorological phenomenon decorated the pitch-black skies last night as a glowing ring encircled a full moon."

First off, the moon is WAY too bright over the last few years.  It used to be a lovely mellow moon....

And this "rare" moon halo phenomenon is showing up more frequently.

FYI,

That observatory is about 30 miles from my house, and The guy (Haley) lives in this area as well and he is the man whom is credited with finding Haley's comet

It was so foggy last night on my way home at 11 and then back to work at 4 that the halo was really prominent.

I'm thinking this is where it's heading ...


Isaiah 30:26   (GNT)

The moon will be as bright as the sun, and the sun will be seven times brighter than usual, like the light of seven days in one. This will all happen when the LORD bandages and heals the wounds he has given his people.
