Moon Halo

Moon Halo

Halos, also known as icebows, are optical phenomena that appear near or around the Sun or Moon,
and sometimes near other strong light sources such as street lights. There are many types of
optical halos, but they are mostly caused by ice crystals in cold cirrus clouds located high
(510 km, or 36 miles) in the upper troposphere. Sun Dog, Sun & Moon Halo Images
