Christmas Eve Moon Halo

Our news desk here at News 14 Carolina fielded a lot of phone calls late Christmas Eve night and early Christmas morning about a halo around the moon. You can see that halo in the above photo taken Christmas Eve night outside News 14 Carolina by our master control operator Adam Gross.

High thin clouds moved into our region on Christmas Eve night. Those high, thin clouds are made up of tiny ice crystals. The moon light shining through the ice crystals created
the halo effect that many people reported seeing Monday night.

Little erie how I have only seen this halo twice. Christmas Eve of 2006 and Christmas Eve 2007!
Coincedence? I don't think so!

Way to call me out on not being in the control room, Lee.
