Did you see the “Fire Rainbow” today?

Posted by: Kristian In: Science

Today (May 22, 2010, 2:20 PM), as I was driving in Union City, my son asked me: “Is that a rainbow?” I looked up and saw what looked like a rainbow “belt”. I had never seen anything like it!

At home, I did some research, and found out that this phenomenon is quite rare, and is actually called a “Circumhorizontal Arc“, also known as a “Fire Rainbow”. I was glad that I had my iPhone with me to capture this occurrence.

Has anyone else seen this before?

Hi Kristian-

This is pretty cool. Images like this never fail to remind me of God. Thanks for sharing :)
