/ The moon tonight
Bad weather on the way.
oh great :(
Saw a huge halo round the moon last night, as I walked back from my sister's house to my mum's house, probably about 10pm
I've also noted that there was one bright "star" quite close to the moon
And that, and your post, made me realise that I haven't got Stellarium installed on my current laptop
Just installing that now...
In folklore it can also mean bad omens, different colours mean different things. Red is bad, blue good. Green is unusual (and very very bad), if memory serves me right
That bright star is in fact Jupiter.
halo indicates very high level thin cloud in advance of a depression.
