Moon Halo

In the very early hours of 24th December (1 am to be precise), I took my dog into the garden to see if he needed to go to the loo before bed (he's got very bad arthritis and needs to be carried out).

There was snow on the ground which made the night appear less dark than usual. As I looked up, there was a fantastic halo around the moon. I know it's just light refracting through water droplets in the air, but it looked totally breathtaking.

I could have stood there and stared for hours, but -5 degrees Celsius made me go inside after a few minutes!
