Incredibly dynamic night skies over Central Oregon. Bend and Redmond city lights can be seen reflecting on the clouds above them. The 1/2 full moon had perfect conditions to reveal a moon halo for most of the night which is caused by it's light reflecting off ice crystals in the thin layer of Cirrus clouds.
