Moon - moonbow?


Recommended Posts

Just looked out to confirm that the clouds were still there and whether I could see the moon close to Jupiter, and caught this view instead.  Not the usual halo around the moon, but much further away.  OK, so I know what the con-trails are, but is this a moon-bow?

Sorry about the truly lousy image snapped on a convenient hand-held bridge camera in auto mode! (must learn how to control manually some time.)

Afraid not, it is another Moon halo. I have just once seen a Moon bow, it has to be raining and you have to be between the rain and the full Moon. It is quite a sight if you get the chance, very much like a ghost rainbow as the colours are very muted to the naked eye.   :icon_biggrin:
