With a few thin breaks in the cloud last night there was a halo round the Moon. I tried several shots but it was very difficult to photograph the effect. Either the halo showed but the Moon was well over exposed or the Moon surface features showed and the halo was lost.
I didn't get the tripod out, just rested the camera on the side gate, so I was quite pleased to see the Moon's craters in the second photo.
We did manage to get out of the lane this morning so Bobby won't be giving me dirty looks all day today.
Yesterday I put a large auger bit in the cordless drill to make a few holes in the ice on the pond and was quite surprised to find it was over one inch thick. That is going to take a long time to thaw.
