If you have time tonight, take a look at the moon. We noticed a slight halo circumscribing it at 6pm. According to NASA, "Halos form when the sunlight or moonlight is refracted or bent by ice crystals associated with thin-high level clouds, like cirrus or cirrostratus.

Often, a halo around the moon or sun is an indicator of cloudy or rainy weather as high level cirrus and cirrostratus clouds that cause halos tend to drift ahead of frontal systems (especially warm fronts) that produce rainfall."

Hmmm... We prefer to think it's the Artemis' gift to Angelenos for putting up with all the campaign ads. Either way, enjoy the view while it lasts.
