Beautiful Sight

Two nights ago, we saw the most beautiful sight. The full moon was extremely high with a perfect circle surrounding it (think of a CD: the small, cut out circle in the middle would be the moon and the outer edge of the CD would be the circle engulfing it). The outer circle surrounding the moon was actually a rainbow with the red on the inside instead of the outside. It was a gorgeous halo. We tried to get a picture, but it was too big for our camera and the night was too dark. Although we don't have visual evidence, we still wanted to share it with all of you anyway.

I found a website that sort of shows what we saw: http://www.rain.org/~mkummel/stumpers/08mar02.html
It is the photo that says, "Ring around the full moon at night." What we saw was much prettier, but this will give you some idea of what we're talking about. I wanted to place the photo on here (or at least create a link to take you directly there), but I am not very blog-savvy.
