Lunar Halo Over Spain (Picture of the Day: 12/3/12)

A quadruple lunar halo over Spain. Source

This image is actually quite rare and fantastic. What we are seeing here is a quadruple lunar halo over Madrid, Spain. Falling ice crystals can, on occasion, create a lensing effect in the sky. This lensing effect can create halos around the sun or Moon. These halos are rare by themselves, but here we are seeing four of these rare halos. I was blown away by this picture and just had to share it.
