Moonbows (Lunar Rainbows)

Have you ever seen a rainbow at night? If you haven’t then don’t feel left in the dark because many professional Astronomers and Meteorologists are unaware that such a phenomena even exists.

Rainbows offer great pleasure for the observer and an abundance of photo opportunities for the weather photographer.

The best specimens are visible within an hour or two of sunset and sunrise and offer bright primary and secondary arcs with striking Alexander's dark band accompanied by vivid supernumerary arcs. Have you ever seen a blood red rainbow?, a bow with spokes?, or a lightning bolt flashing within a bow?, keep watching the skies and you just might get rewarded by such a fleeting and heavenly sight.
