It's called a lunar halo or 22 degree halo. It's caused by the light refracting through hexagonal ice crystals. That's the short explanation anyway.

we saw the moon Halo on Dec 24/2012, but there was a white cloudy line from one side of the circle to the other end,it was crossing the big circle, almost like a scanner then it disappeared.
what can this be? maybe some else saw it?

Most likely a jet contrail.

I though it was that but the line was inside the circle acting like when someone is scanning something.
