The moon...

How I could I forget this!?
The moon on our first workday was surreal!! It has this fantastic ring around it.
Not to mention, the sky was so clear, and the moon so crisp.
I took some pictures, but since I didn't have a tripod they just don't do justice.

I guess this phenomenon is called "moon rings" which you can read about here. 
It's cause by refraction of moonlight in ice crystals in the upper atmosphere. 
I've never seen anything like that here in Pennsylvania.
I'm so glad we got to see it!
