High Lunar Halo

There were fragments of halo several times during the evening then toward midnight a complete and very obvious halo formed. The sky round the moon is burnt out in this exposure of several seconds so the white disc is about 10 times larger than the moon. The bright spot above it is a lens reflection.

A couple of hours later the moon was higher up and another suitable patch of cirrus moved through. The cirrus wasn't as smooth so the halo was a bit more ragged.
