I went to out absorb some of the moon light I noticed a huge halo around the moon. It's been a while since I've seen one and it was a magical sight.
A halo round either the moon or the sun is a visual effect caused by light reflecting of ice crystals high in the sky.
I have found this on the Wiki entry -
In the Anglo-Cornish dialect of English a halo round the sun or the moon is called a cock's eye and is a token of bad weather. The term is related to the Breton word
(sun cock) which has the same meaning.kog-heol

It snowed this morning, just a light dusting but it's still unusual for Sussex and certainly considered bad weather.
