May 20th, 2016: Halo Everybody, Halo

Halo from Atacama.



Quote:
Explanation: Influenced by the strong Pacific El Nino, cloudy skies have more often come to Chile's high Atacama Desert this season,
despite its reputation as an astronomer's paradise. Located in one of the driest, darkest places on planet Earth, domes of the region's
twin 6.5 meter Magellan telescopes of Carnegie Las Campanas Observatory were closed on May 13. Still, a first quarter Moon and bright
stars shine through in this panoramic night skyscape, the lunar disk surrounded by a beautiful, bright halo. The angular radius of the halo
is 22 degrees. Not determined by the brightness or phase of the Moon itself, the angle is set by the hexagonal geometry of atmospheric
ice crystals that reflect and refract the moonlight. On that night, the brilliant star just inside the halo's radius was really planet Jupiter.
Flanking the halo to the far left is brightest star Sirius, with Arcturus to the right.
In other words, cool shit.

And this is why I read APoD every morning . I even went through ALL of their archives, all the way back to when it was just charts and non-animated gif files! There's some truly astonishing stuff to be found.
