Winter Halo
Photo By Rhonda Mills

  • Title: Winter Halo
  • State/Province/Region: Arkansas
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Buffalo National River
  • Nearest Town: Ponca
  • Brief Directions: Ponca is a tiny recreational river community, located in the headwaters area of the upper Buffalo National River in northwest Arkansas.
  • Notes: Winter is a wonderful time for night sky photography in this region as it enjoys little to no light pollution, as well as elevations in the Ozark Mountains (1,800 - 2,300 ft) that provide crisp, clear star gazing, including quality opportunities to photograph the Milky Way.
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Description: Two nights before Christmas 2012, this beautiful, gigantic halo appeared around the moon, indicating that a winter storm was headed our way. Sure enough, two days later the sleet, snow and howling winds arrived, making me a believer in the halo as a harbinger of coming wintry weather. As a bonus, Jupiter was shining brightly in close proximity to the moon, so I was able to include it in the frame.
  • Gear: Nikon D800 camera; Nikkor 24mm lens; Hoya UV filter; Manfrotto ballhead and carbon fiber tripod
