Last night at around 2:30 a.m. I had stepped outside because I was unable to sleep. Earlier that day my 18 yr. old son was taking my 15 yr. old son to the store in his new 4x4 truck, the truck suddenly died on them doing 45 mph., the steering locked up and the brakes were useless. They hit the edge of road and lost control, narrowly missing a guard rail by inches, barely missed the electic pole, started sliding sideways they took out a fence and hit an oak tree, about 10 inches in diameter. Truck was messed up, they were shook up pretty badly, but not a scratch on them. If that truck had not been so jacked up in the air, this could have been fatal.
In the texas sky the moon was full and bright, except one thing, there was this red ring around the full moon. I know that in some of my reading of the supernatural and paranormal I have come across something about this red ring, but I cannot quite remember what a red ring around a full moon is supposed to symbolize, or the meaning behind it. My question to you all is does anybody else heard of this? Seen this yourself? And If so, what religion or legend does it stem from?

The colour of the light is because of the dust in the atmosphere. The longer waves are reddish, and shorter the waves, it would be bluish (regular). It denotes that there was atmospheric dusts on the higher layers.

Yeah, I heard the same thing as susmith, rain or snow within three days. At any rate, it does seem to happen most often in the fall when the weather is turning cold---actually it's pretty common around here( Utah) this time of year.

I understand the scientific answer, but that is not really what I am looking for. I want to know more about the spiritual significance of this occurance. What religion or faith does this have a significant meaning to, and what does it symbolize to that faith. I just had an overwhelming feeling that this was supposed to have a very spiritual connection to this event.

The Native American lore is that a ring around the moon means a change in the weather within two days. It is the time of year when we can expect major changes in the weather...

I don't think the significance of a ring around the moon is particularl to any one religion. Many religions have folklores surrounding it. But you can consider it to be nothing more than folklore and just dismiss it all together like many people do. There are cultures where it means bad luck, or tragedy to any who see it. Then there are some cultures where it's totally reversed and it means good fortune. You just never know. Unfortunately, there's no one religion we can tie it to and therefore discover any "true" meaning of it.

It may also be that you are remembering the scene in the movie, Practical Magic. In it, Sandra Bullock's character sees a ring around the moon, and she realizes something bad is about to happen. (And it does with her sister, Nicole Kidman's character.)

That was Nicole Kidman? huh..never knew that. Anywho, Maybe it is significant to you because of your sons accident. Maybe you take the moon to be a sign for something and just didn't know what. Or..like Miriel said you could just be remembering that scene from Practical Magic and just not remembering.

I realized I made a mistake in explaining what I saw that night. The red ring I saw was not a ring around the outer edge of the moon, this was a blood red ring within the inner area of the moon's surface. Similar to a blood moon, except this was just a ring around the inner edge of the surface of the full moon.

Yep, that was Nicole Kidman...I had to do a double take at the credits on that one, too. !

I'll admit though, I've never heard of a red ring *on* the inside of the moon like that. I have no idea what that would mean.
