Portrait of a Busy Sky.

What a busy sky it was at the midnight. Mutiple lunar halos crowning the moon, pleiades coming near the moon, the "hunter" orion rising, many constellations, a contrail passing through the lunar halo, all at once! What an experience it was to be able to see these!

I'm not sure about what halos these are. The inner halo seems to be an odd-radius 9 degree halo and the outer one seems to be a 22 degree halo. I would love to know about these halos from Earrhsky team.
