   Lunar Circumscribed Halo 

Circumscribed and 22º halos around the Moon. This rare sight was imaged by William Trost at New Carlisle, Ohio USA on March 17th '03 with the moon almost full . Look carefully to see also the faint paraselenic circle, the lunar counterpart of the parhelic circle, curving away apparently upwards on both sides of the moon.
