Halo Cloud

Moon has cloud halo!

This photo was taken in Sandy with a smart phone. I looked up to admire the stars around 9:30pm when I saw a cloud-like halo around the moon. I grabbed my phone and snapped the picture. I've never seen anything like it. There is the normal glow around the moon but there seems to be a perfectly round cloud forming a broad circle around it. Dave, what could cause this?

I saw this same thing same night. It struck me as odd and held my attention. I wonder if it has something to do with the tornados that have it.
