The day before yesterday when I ate out dinner with my family, I discovered the phenomenon on the sky. Please look at the picture which I posted. It looked like very mysterious to us. While we were driving, we talked about it.
We saw it 8ish pm after we finish our dinner. The moon looked very thick and one bright star was shining at the top of the moon. When I discovered it, I suggested my family to look up the sky because I've never seen it before.

Since I was very curious about it, I tried to look it for via the Internet. However, I don't know how we call the phenomenon both in Japanese and English, so I couldn't find any article about it.
Therefore, if you know about it, please teach me about it.
