rorycourt Happy new year!  We drove out onto the ice road last year (a few days ago πŸ˜‚) to realize there was a full moon and a really cool effect that only occurs when it is extremely cold outside!  The ring seen in this picture is the result of all the moisture in the air being crystallized into ice and reflecting the light from the moon.  During the day we call them "sun dogs", anyone know what they are called when it occurs with a moon?! My guess is "moon dogs"... #explorecanada
