It’s definitely beautiful to look at. From a folkloric standpoint, however, manytraditions of weather magic indicate that a ring around the moon means bad weather, rain, or other foul atmospheric conditions are on the way.

Lunar coronae are much more familiar than those around the sun. They are seen when the clouds are thin enough that each single corona light ray reaching the eye is scattered or diffracted by only one droplet. Of course, the whole corona is made by a great many droplets individually scattering the moonlight.

Sometimes as clouds pass over the moon the corona shrinks and swells as different sized droplets mould it. Small droplets make the largest coronae with aureoles a few moon diameters across.

A 22° halo can also surround the moon but that is much larger.

Any small particle can make a corona. Ice crystals in high clouds form them. Even wind drifting pollen grains make them.

The cloud droplets that produced Amber Rahm’s corona were 24 micron across.

The inner red edge of the first ring is 9.5 moon disks in diameter or 4.25°. This IRIS simulation for 24 micron diameter droplets matches the ring size.

Belief’s

The Moon is the queen of mesmerism and mystification. Enticing us with her delicate aura, intriguing us with her inconstant appearance, the Moon is a wanton creature; sometimes appearing low on the horizon, illuminating the night in her full orb, sometimes appearing briefly, dressed in her flimsiest crescent. Traditional astrology considers the Moon a significator of change, fickleness and easy impressionability; and yet few astrologers would dare to disregard its powerful influence upon earthly events.

Despite all we know about the mechanics and composition of the Moon, a sense of magic and fascination remains. What is the basis of the Moon’s enigmatic powers? Has modern science only begun to scratch the surface of the knowledge imbedded in folklore and myth?
