Pic du Midi Moonlight Glory 

  If 'ordinary' glories and Brocken spectres are ghostly, this one is doubly so.

It was produced by moonlight high up at the Pic du Midi Observatory in the French Pyrenees.

André Rondi, Sylvain Rondi and Bruno David captured the apparition after an observing session at the 60cm telescope.

It was not easy to see. The image was obtained with a 30s exposure at f/1.4 using a 30mm lens on a Nikon D70.
