Moon Halo in a Cloudy Night

By: Yuri Beletsky


Region: Americas

Site: Las Campanas - Chile

Date: 2015 June 27

From the photographer: "This is not the best weather for astronomers, who are struggling to get every photon from distant space objects. But the view outside was quite spectacular and we witnessed an amazing 22-degree halo (an atmospheric phenomenon) around the Moon. On the foreground you can also see the dome of Clay 6.5-m Magellan Telescope on Las Campanas Observatory, Chile. Yuri Beletsky
