A rare sight of the moon with a halo around it, was sighted by residents of Hyderabad, last night. The halo was visible around the moon even up till midnight. The phenomena is entirely localized, because of the local weather conditions and is not visible all over, said Raghunandan, representative of Planetary Society of India. The ice crystals in the moisture absorb light to form the halo, he added.
