A Lunar Halo


A REMARKABLE coloured halo forming a complete circle about the moon was witnessed by me on Wednesday evening, December 2, at 7.15, my position being in North Shields. I am seventy-nine years of age, and never saw anything similar—that is, encircling the moon. It only lasted about seven or eight minutes. I am wondering if anyone else took much notice of it.
