A collection of my thoughts and experiences.

“Ring around the Moon, rain around the corner” is an age-old country saying that predicts predominantly wet weather for the next day or two. In fact, the halo effect is most commonly observed when it appears to be encircling a full Moon (as above) and is caused by Moonlight passing through a build-up of moisture suspended in the Earth’s atmosphere. Meanwhile, I more or less managed to capture the halo shown in the above photograph just after midnight on the 1st March using just my little Ricoh¬† pocket camera.

Though interestingly and despite the home-spun predictive philosophy, the following day turned out to be the sunniest and warmest so far in 2010.
