Lunar Corona

Many thanks for this photograph. The spectrum of hydrogen is also affected by the moon’s gravitational pull, and the spectrum of hydrogen near the sun will be affected by the sun’s gravitation. This is all on the non relativistic level so far,”

It looks more like a Scheiner Halo to us (with the characteristic circa 3 Moon-diameter radius) and, given the recent air temperatures reported for Wales, that would be far more likely. Meanwhile, how exactly is a gravitational effect on a spectrum not a relativistic effect?
