And they have the pictures to prove it.
After being alerted to the meteorological phenomenon produced by moonlight
reflecting off ice crystals in the atmosphere, many took out their cameras and
smartphones and started sending photos to pnj.com.
The lunar halo was a perfect circle around the moon. In fact, the combination
of the waxing gibbous moon and the circular clouds gave the appearance of a
humongous bullseye in the sky.
Some reported seeing the planet Jupiter only a few degrees away from the moon
too. A perfect night for skywatching!
