This stunning image shows the moon surrounded by a celestial rainbow.
The rare phenomenon – known as a lunar corona – occurs when light reflecting off the moon’s silvery surface is split by water particles or ice crystals in the air.
This creates a rainbow or halo effect around the planet.
The image was captured by photographer Alberto Ghizzi Panizza, 45, near the northern Italian city of Parma.
He said: ‘I have seen this phenomenon several times, but I had never been able to photograph it.
‘This time, seeing it from home for the lockdown, I had with me all the necessary equipment to best capture this moment.
‘Between 10pm and 12am I took a few hundred photos of the moon that created halos, iridescences and crowns among clouds and veils.’
