Daily Eye Wonder January 2013

A collection of some beautiful, strange, interesting, and fascinating pictures of weather, environment and space that might let you wonder.

A crisp, winter scene taken from Lower Miller Creek, Alaska one January night. The first quarter moon appears full due to overexposure, but the moonlight refelected by the ice crystals in the high, cirrus clouds is what creates the halo in the sky. The brighter spots on the left and right are moondogs; similar to that of sundogs when the sun is out.
