Description
A high haze was hanging over Edmonton, Alberta on Mar 27th. I took this image at 10:31PM of the 12 day old Moon surrounded by a lunar halo complete of moondogs. The constellation of Leo is also visible in the image. Saturn is also present in the image and is located at about 8 o'clock of the Moon (an annotated image can be found here: http://cosmicjourney.net/images/photos/big/Moondog1280-Annot.jpg)
