Moon Ring

All to do with Moon refection against ice crystals in clouds or something!!

The ring is caused by the diffraction of moonlight through high altitude ice crystals.

In physics it is known as an 'interference function'. It's diameter tells us about the average distance between the ice crystals and the thickness and intensity of the ring tell us about how well ordered they are.

Always a wonderful sight.
