Corona around the Moon

This is a photo of the moon shortly after it rose over the mountains to the east. There is a scattering of high clouds that were moving rapidly from the right to the left in the photo. The colors in the corona were quite distinct. You can also see some faint moondogs, light effects at right angles. These appear as faint purplish spots at the 12:00, 3:00, 6:00 and 9:00 positions around the moon. There is also a faint double corona effect.
