Sliver of a moon

nearly new moon setting against horizon
Caught the moon setting against the dim twililght.

Sky was on fire

For a few minutes at least … this one didn’t last long, went from a soft glow to what you see here to grey within a few minutes.

Fiery sunset

Moon Halo

Last night’s moon halo.

The 22° moon halo is caused by tiny ice crystals in the upper atmosphere refracting the light on its way to our eyeballs (or my camera). There’s a faint glimpse of Orion in the upper left.
