Re: rainbow halo around the moon tonight Aug 29 around 1am
it looked just like this. [link to home.hiwaay.net]

I tried to get a photo with my cell and camera didn't come out good one was all bright and the other came out red...

some links

A typical corona is only couple degrees in diameter and closely fringes the moon. Although not as intense as a solar rainbow, coronas may appear in several colors. On rare occasions lunar halos and lunar coronas can appear together
[link to home.hiwaay.net]



Some interesting facts about halos: Halos always occur exactly 22 degrees away from the sun or moon. Occasionally, intense halos can be double halos, just as intense rainbows can be doubled. Intense halos can also produce "moondogs" or "sundogs," very bright regions on the halo evenly spaced at 90 degree intervals around the halo.

This means that in addition to the direct moonlight, you will also see diffracted moonlight in a circle 22 degrees away from the moon. This is about the distance of your fist, held at arm's length.
Like a rainbow, this halo can even be slightly colored; red on the inside, and blue on the outside.
Yes, it can mean that rain or snow is coming soon. Those high, wispy clouds could be the forerunners of storm clouds right behind them

I too saw it at 12:24am on October 1, 2012. I am in Southern West Virginia, however the one that I saw was two overlapping rings, much like a wedding band set laying on a table top. The primary one had the slight rainbow tint of the red and blue, the other was much lighter and was harder to see, but it was there. Really cool stuff!! I think this is the first time I have ever seen a double halo.
