Moondogs!

The very best image of paraselenae or moondogs that I've ever seen is posted at http://www.spaceweather.com/gallery/indiv_upload.php?upload_id=76002

This shot was the APOD for January 26th.

Yeah, it is very pretty. I happened to already have it up as my desktop background.

That's an incredible shot. The stars almost look out of place. Beautiful.
