Ring Around The Moon

Moon Light Effects. ... The ring around the Moon is caused by the refraction of Moonlight (which of course is reflected sunlight) from ice crystals in the upper atmosphere. The shape of the ice crystals results in a focusing of the light into a ring.


The ring around the moon is called Halo. A 22° halo is a halo, one type of optical phenomenon, forming a circle with a radius of approximately 22° around the Sun, or occasionally the Moon (also called a moon ring or winter halo). It forms as the sun- or moonlight is refracted in millions of randomly oriented hexagonal ice crystals suspended in the atmosphere.
