No one sees that same halo moon – the refraction and reflection of the ice crystals that form the ring display differently depending on where you are viewing it from, so if you saw one  last night – it was truly yours alone.

To the left of the moon, you can see a tiny white dot, which is Jupiter.

It is claimed they herald storms because they are indicative of cloud forming higher than 20,000ft, but that hasn’t happened so far. We are keeping out fingers crossed.

This is one of the delights of out-of-the-way travelling we have been lucky enough to enjoy  – the wonders of the sky at night when you can leave the big city lights behind. Heading out to remote fields, hills and casitas is highly recommended, and stand by for star trail experiments once the full moon wanes!
