So last night my sister and I were a bit scared because we thought we saw someone in our field next door... Turns out it was a budding tree... BUT then I looked up and saw this awesome ring around the moon, Lunar Halo!

So neat...

My grandpa said that meant it would rain within 3 days. Not sure if I ever paid any attention to see if it was true or not.

I believe it means there are ice crystals in the earth's atmosphere and the light from the moon bounces off and creates this halo effect.
