You may have noticed a circle around the moon around 7 p.m. Saturday. It's called a "moon ring" or "winter halo" and is usually caused by ice crystals that form high in the upper atmosphere.
The effect is similar to what you'd see in a rainbow: light from the moon passes through those crystals and is refracted.
More specifically -- as the moons light passes through crystals in Cirrus clouds, the light reflected. If the crystals are oriented correctly and positioned just right, then the result is a halo effect.
While someone may spot the halo in one area of Central Arkansas, someone 30 miles down the road may see something completely different depending on their positioning.
