HELILIGENSCHEIN or HOLY LIGHT

While out last night hoping to catch some Noctilucent clouds, i just happened to notice that my shadow in the field in which I stood had a very nice glow around it, mainly around my head or the camera on the tripod...known as the heiligenschein or holy light. I often tried to capture this in the cold winters morning while the sun was low in the sky and the grass was wet with dew or frost, never actually thought about trying it at night - so it was a nice surprise. No matter were i moved the glow followed.
