Caption: Moon halo above palm trees. Also known as a paraselene, or Moon dog, this atmospheric phenomenon is caused by the refraction (bending) of moonlight by ice crystals in fog or high-altitude cirrus or cirrostratus clouds. This is a 22-degree Moon halo, photographed in September from Sydney, Australia.
