There are some things you just can't capture in a photo. This shot on my phone couldn't possibly do justice to what I had witnessed.
I was bewitched by the spectral sighting.
Never had I ever seen a rainbow haloing a moon!
Ghostly and alluring, it was like gazing at a portal into another realm!
|Several conditions have to be just right for a moonbow to occur|
Upon googling, I learned that a moonbow also known as a lunar halo or lunar rainbow, is a rare natural atmospheric phenomenon that occurs when the moon's light is reflected and refracted off water droplets in the air.
In other words, it is a rainbow produced by moonlight rather than sunlight.
It is believed that a moonbow brings good luck to the localized area it is viewed in.
In these strange and uncertain times, I have been looking up at the heavens a lot lately for signs of good things to come.
Perhaps this is a harbinger of something great on its way?
