Moon Halo

Despite the temperature being -14C (-23C with the Wind Chill Factor*) and it being expected to drop to -27C (-38 with the WCF) overnight, it looked like it was preparing to snow.

There was an incredible halo around the moon. The moon, itself, was slightly hazy, but there was a huge ring, though, some distance away.

It was beautiful!

*Wind Chill Factor (WCF) is what most Canadians concern themselves with in winter. WCF is what the temperature actually feels like when you factor in humidity and windspeed. The wind can also make our body feel colder through the evaporation of any existing moisture from our skin. Through this process more heat is drawn from our body.
