Last winter when it was really cold I had the furry ones out at night and I saw the most amazing thing, a rainbow around the moon.  I stood outside for ages just looking at it, fantastic.  I had never seen anything like this before.  It was one of those things that make you appreciate how wonderful the world can be.

When I mentioned it most people hadn't seen one but one person said it was a moonbow and that they are really rare.  I did try to take a picture but my camera isn't that good.  By the power that is Google here are some from people with posh cameras:

These are the best pictures I could find but they are nothing like seeing the real thing.  Keep your eyes on the moon, its worth it.

If you are getting repeats love please just post one.

My computer is acting weird today tried to comment about the moonbows but for some reason my computer keeps giving me 503 errors.

Anyway, I think it is Awesome what things our skies can produce for us to see/view at times.

Never actually seen a moonbow, but love the pictures - they have an eerie twilight zone quality.
