Moeraki Boulders and Luna Halo J0347P Panorama-Fv4-2

Panoramic view of Moeraki Boulders on Koekohe Beach assembled before a rare 22 Degree Luna Halo. Two very unusual phenomena captured together, 9:45pm 5 September 2009, make for a very rare sight of the world’s best and largest examples of concretions

 

22 degree luna halo Moeraki - 5 September 2009

It happened again! Only four full moons after the previous sighting!

I wanted to get a special shot of the Moeraki Boulders, so decided to go there when the moon was rising and try my luck with a night shot. On the way I had seen the largest of shooting stars, and as you do, made a wish.

I was getting some nice moonlit scenes with the tide well out, when Mathy, my wife, pointed out the huge ring seemingly covering the sky. Again it had been oblivious to me.

This one stayed around for hours, and so did we, getting amazing chances to make entire panoramas including the beach and all.

Folk law has it that such rings are precursors to bad weather, allowing this phenomena to fit nicely into my REVENGEtheme on global warming. My Exhibition series with this new edition can be seen here.
