And now, some pretty picture (click for larger) from contributors.
The first two are courtesy of Alan Clark of Rock Springs, Wyoming. Fantastic shots of halos and a moon dog. According to Alan, the pictures were 8 second exposures taken at 100 ISO. They were taken in Rock Springs at 6:30PM on December 11th. Thanks Alan!
The next photo comes from Cassie Robinson in Fargo, North Dakota. I believe it was taken early on the 15th.
