A 'lunar halo' has been pictured in the skies above the Isle of Wight.

The rare phenomenon is caused by the refraction of moonlight from ice crystals high in the atmosphere.

Islanders managed to capture the ring around the moon from various places across the Island.

On November 25, Sienna Anderson took an amazing shot from Newtown Creek.

While County Press Camera Club member Mally Boo said: "The clouds opened to allow the moon to shine through like it was wearing a halo."

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: "When a ring appears around the Moon or Sun, sometimes referred to as haloes, this suggests rainfall may be approaching. The halo is caused by ice crystals formed in high clouds.

These ice crystals then refract the light from the Moon or Sun. As the ice crystals travel lower, precipitation becomes more likely.

"In summer months particularly, the Halo can be a sign of approaching storms."
