Stomper John was in awe when he looked at the moon and saw a rainbow halo around it on Sunday night (Oct 9).

"I was very shocked to see for the first time, a bright moon surrounded by a beautiful rainbow in the downtown area," he said.

He shared photos he took of the spectacular sight.

This phenomenon is known as lunar corona and is more common than halos around the sun.

They are seen when the clouds are thin enough so that each single corona light ray reaching the eye is scattered by only one droplet.

The whole corona is made by many droplets individually scattering moonlight.
