    They were talking about this on the radio last night, two phenomia, a moon bow, as you call it and a halo, moon bows are not as visible to the naked eye but appear on photo better where there is a lot of mist in the atmosphere, the halo is much more visible and truly beautiful, this is a good time of year to see them.

    Seen them on three occaisions! Best when there is a full moon on a showery n windy night with a mainly clear sky. Most amazing view was when travelling up the A9 at Drumochter....

    Seen moonbows a few times myself(the best was when I was on a boat between Raasay and Applecross). The moon has to be behind you to see them. Halos are quite common but to see a good one requires the conditions to be just right with lots of ice crystals in the upper atmosphere.Fantastic sight.

    i live on a little island with very little light pollution so you will see some amazing details if you look at the moon with some good quality binos
