After seeing the beautiful solar pollen corona posted by Reinhard Nitze in Germany on today, I was astounded to see a colorful corona around the moon later the same evening in Texas! To borrow a line, "It appears the same pollen that makes you sneeze, and produces a solar corona, can also make a corona around the moon as well. Only this time when you sneeze...' Gesundheit! '...look for coronas near the moon too." Photo details: Canon EOS Digital Rebel, 400 ASA, 2s exposure.
