Explanation: When Moon in Waxing Gibbous phase meets Orange Giant star Aldebaran along with the blanket of micro ice-crystals presented in in the upper Troposphere on 27 January 2018. The faded ring around the Moon is caused by the refraction of Moonlight from the tiny ice-crystals.Due to intense level of pollution, moon halo is a very rare phenomena in densely populated Metropolitan cities like Noida in National Capital Region (NCR) of India. You can see the Orange Giant Star-Aldebaran along with some stars in the constellation of Taurus on the top-right corner of the image.
