Hi Tony On the evening of Oct 14th I watched the hunter full Moon rise in the east in a crisp crystal clear sky. When I seen it again at 04.00 BST on the morning of the 15th the scene was even more dramatic. High level cirrostratus clouds arrived from the west and crossed over the Moon creating a wonderful, and intense, 22 degree Moon halo with a hint of upper tangent arc. I took these images from my home using a super wide angle lens which generated a FOV over 100 degrees wide. Fujifilm S6500fd 6.3MP at ISO400, 15 sec's with 58mm wide angle lens
