Blue Ring Around the Moon.

Blue Ring Around the Moon

This blue ring around the moon was ‘spotted’ while digiscoping with a Vanguard VSP 61 spotting scope. Folklore has it that the blue ring will be followed by snow or rain. The scientific explanation is that the blue ring is caused by tiny ice particles in the upper layers of the atmosphere, so yes there is a probability that it might rain.

Running away from the light, into dark clouds. Sounds like the story of Sri Lanka.
