LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV)- Anyone out there seeing a ring around the moon?
It's often referred to as a halo. The sight is from tiny ice crystals high up in the sky, usually from cirrus clouds.
Cirrus clouds are the feathery type clouds that usually come before an approaching cold front or storm. That's exactly what Arkansas is experiencing tonight!
The clouds are made up of ice crystals. The refraction and reflection from the crystals are what make up the ring that we can see from the ground.
Believe or not, not everyone in Arkansas can see the ring. You have to be at just the right angle for the crystals to be visible and make the halo that some Arkansans are seeing tonight.
These high clouds are moving in tonight in preparation for some rain chances in parts of southern and eastern Arkansas on Sunday afternoon.
