    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Jeff Gerbier of Orlando, Florida told me, 'Everyone around me wasn't too sure what it was, until I jumped on Google and found out. One guy thought the end of the world was near. I'd never seen anything like it. I've seen funny looking clouds but nothing like this.' Here's more information on sun halos.
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    Halos around the moon ? or sun ? are a sign of thin cirrus clouds drifting high above our heads. They are a sign of nearby storms.


    A ring or circle of light around the sun or moon is called a halo by scientists. We get many messages throughout each year from people who've just spotted a ring around the sun or moon.
