Moon halos aren’t unusual!
But Elliptical Moon Halos, that look like giant alien mouth swallowing our moon are still surrounded by mystery and baffle scientists.
Intense halos around the moon are eerie but rather common space phenomena. Nonetheless, in rare mysterious cases, they have an elliptic form and look like a giant alien mouth swallowing our moon.
This elliptical moon halo was caught on camera by Sophie Melanson near Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada, on December 3, 2014. Amazing!
Elliptical moon halos are one of the puzzles that baffle scientists for decades. Indeed, they can only be simulated in atmospheric laboratories using ice crystals THAT ARE UNPHYSICAL! A pretty awesome space weather phenomena, though!
Today is full moon. So if the sky is clear look at the moon and maybe you will witness something magical!
