Lunar Corona

Submitted by: Dave Miller at Sun Oct 19 23:35:01 2008 UTC

As soon as i went outside this morning around 7:00am i was treated to a very vivid Lunar Corona. The 32 freezing temperature this morning had created a cold fog and the sky was also covered in very high thin cloud. The image is a great representation of what it looked like visually.
