I am starting to think the green streak is a meteorite - I think I am going to play the lottery today.

Andy

It rather looks like a landing Reptilian spaceship. It's even more rare than a meteorite, so bid double pot today. :D
Andy, lovely picture. What were your settings? I tried taking one 4 years back with my 300D and failed miserably :P

And I agree with marekjoz, definitely an alien ship   ;)

I am not sure about the settings Andy used, and I agree that it is a very cool picture, as is Crashers shot. When I shoot the moon I use spot metering (on clear nights), AV and last friday for this shot it was F11, which was the lowest combination I could get with the teleconverter :)

5D II, 800 F5.6L + 2x III teleconverter, @F11, ISO 100, Spot Metering, AV Mode, One Shot. Plus a very sturdy tripod and a Gimbal? head. 10 second delay (which with the speed of the earth made me put the focus point on the middle on the far right side, and by the time the shot was taken, it had passed the middle of the moon). It was also a bit windy, so my friend and I had to cover/shelter the lens from that additional shake. In addition three hours in minus three degrees celsius (waiting for the clouds to go away :)

Nice shot.

http://www.michaelperna.com/perna-photos/pages/Moon-rise_over_tree_square.htm

I took this shot when I lived in Texas (many moons ago). It was shot with a Hasselblad using 100ISO kodak  tungsten slide film. 15 min exposure. The moon is behind the tree and moved quite a bit - but I like the effect.

I see a lot of digital photos these days taken at night with black skies. A camera set to tungsten WB gives a much better blue.

Beautiful!

According to Wikipedia, it's not really a moonbow, but a halo around the moon produced by ice crystals in cirrus clouds. I still think it's beautiful, screw you Wikipedia! :P

It's a halo ween ;D

This on spaceweather.com today...  http://www.spaceweather.com/images2012/31oct12/hathaway.jpg

Given the same clouds/ice crystals one could have all that with the moon, a shot I'm kinda dying to get lol. 

If you get some ground fog at night with a low moon look for these too...  http://www.extremeinstability.com/stockx/optics/o-f8475.jpg  Lunar fogbow. 

I think a Lunar or Moonbow is more of just a rainbow from moonlight, which I've still not gotten and is really hard in some regions.  Martin McKenna has gotten a lot of them now.  http://www.nightskyhunter.com/Rainbow%20&%20Moonbow%20Gallery.html

Lovely! It looks like the tree is a puppeteer!  :)
