Ring Around the Moon

“See a ring around the moon, a storm is sure to follow soon.” 
Wise saw by Mr A. Homespun-Wisdom

“A ring around the moon is caused by high altitude clouds, which precede low-pressure systems bearing moisture. So yes, it does indicate rain. The clouds contain ice crystals which refract the Moon's light, giving a halo effect.”
Cold, hard fact from Mrs A. Boffin

“There’s a Ring Around the Moon”
Old time romantic song by J. Mercer

“See a ring and a moon and you’re standing on the Victoria Embankment.”
C. Pond Esq.
