Another pic from the same spot  just a few minutes later, and looking farther south.

The sunrise broke through the clouds this morning.  It had all of Skye's favorite colors, so I figured I needed to take a pic and share it.

If there has been, I haven't noticed. But I'll be honest, I've preferred to sit closer to fire this last week then go outside and look at the sky.    Today @ 2pm,  it was -7F, and we were down to -22 last night.

Jeeze, I hate it when it gets below 45! That is the main reason I can't live there, despite it's beauty.

We got people wearing shorts, tank tops, and flip flops at 45* up here, lol.  Steam, you need to come up sometime during the 3 months of summer, and sunshine :)

Tonight the moon was making some kind of illusion maybe, it looked like light clouds were perfectly circling the moon. A few minutes later lower clouds passed by but that ring was still visible behind it.

A couple days ago I was able to get a decent picture of the sunrise before starting work. The entire day the sun rays going through the clouds was unreal, almost like a paintbrush pulling the sun rays. Wish I coulda captured all of it.

You captured a beautiful atmospheric phenomena called an ice halo. It happens when the moon is near full, and the upper atmosphere is moisture laden and freezing. Minute ice crystals form, and they refract the light from the moon. The more moisture there is, the better the halo appears. It can take on rainbow coloration, and even make double rings around the moon.

 

My grandmother had a wives tale, (which aren't all wrong) she always told us, that if you counted the visible stars inside the ring, it would tell you how many day until rain......................

 

It's one of my favorite occurrences to see. The same conditions also create sun halos, and " sundogs", which are two rainbow formations on each side of the sun when it is nearer the horizon.
