Around midnight I was on my front porch smoking a cigarette when I saw something in the sky. The photo's I took are set at the highest zoom on my camera (coolpix) - I thought it could be the 1/2 moon - however I've never seen a moon that had a rainbow effect "reflection" above it...It was pitch dark out as it was silent and not a cloud or plane in the sky... It looked like to me a real bright light of some sort - with a multi-color reflection on top of it to best describe the reflection -> (Northern Lights) really cool. It was awesome enough for me to grab my camera and take a few pictures. Sad thing is you can't see the reflection in the photos. However, if there is a good photo enhancer person out there, maybe they can filter it out in these images. Check it out, and enjoy
