Thanks John. I thought I would send the text anyway even though it was probably a local event. I reckon these are the best moondogs I have seen to date. It made that three hours standing in the cold more than worth it. I seen the ISS earlier, probably the faintest I have ever seen it. It was in the same bino field as Jupiter. I didn't take any images of it.

The previous 'best' moonbows I seen where these, from Oct last year, but I took them from the back door. I should have went out somewhere to make the most of it. I think the Oct-Dec period is a great time for lunar atmospherics.

Keep an eye out for moonbows over the next few nights.
