MOON RING

  •  Phenomenon that usually appears in conjunction with a full moon.
  • There appears to be a whitish ring surrounding the moon and centered on it.
  • Caused by refraction of the light from the full moon in the ice particles floating in the clouds, as opposed to a rainbow, where light refracts in the water vapor that makes up the clouds.
