    I watch the video, then read the comments, then re-watch the video and see all that I missed or didn’t understand the first time. Thank you, Carol and Annie.

    Carol, thank you for the info on Moon Dogs.Up here on the Tug Hill Plateau(NYS) we have seen this dubious fellow often this year. Most recent viewing earlier this week of this Native American-revered sign of an approaching snow storm has left us with three feet of new white stuff. Absolutely magnificent.

    Some days these videos turn green momentarily — that happened today. It just started happening in 2017. It never happens to me with any other website, so I don’t think it’s my computer.

    wow, what a beautiful moon halo! being a science nerd, i offer this information to others:
    THE SCIENCE OF THE LUNAR HALO
    The folks at the Farmer’s Almanac have a great explanation of it, and say, “A lunar halo is caused by the refraction, reflection, and dispersion of light through ice particles suspended within thin, wispy, high altitude cirrus or cirrostratus clouds.

    As light passes through these hexagon-shaped ice crystals, it is bent at a 22 degree angle, creating a halo 22 degrees in radius (or 44 degrees in diameter).”

    It’s definitely beautiful to look at. From a folkloric standpoint, however, many traditions of weather magic indicate that a ring around the moon means bad weather, rain, or other foul atmospheric conditions are on the way.

    EarthSky.org says, “Halos are a sign of high thin cirrus clouds drifting 20,000 feet or more above our heads. These clouds contain millions of tiny ice crystals. The halos you see are caused by both refraction, or splitting of light, and also by reflection, or glints of light from these ice crystals. The crystals have to be oriented and positioned just so with respect to your eye, in order for the halo to appear. That’s why, like rainbows, halos around the sun – or moon – are personal. Everyone sees their own particular halo, made by their own particular ice crystals, which are different from the ice crystals making the halo of the person standing next to you.” (posted from thoughtco.com)
