Who Saw That Double Rainbow?

Westporters enjoyed a rare — and beautiful — double rainbow yesterday afternoon:

Double rainbow

But when an alert “06880” photographer snapped this shot, she was the only one who noticed. Everyone else was too busy chatting, or looking at their phones.

  1. Beautiful example of Alexander’s band.

  2. Look closely at the fainter rainbow and you will see that the colors are inverted. Red, orange, and yellow are at the top of the main rainbow and they are at the bottom of the faint rainbow. In the very, very rare triple rainbow the colors are inverted again.
    Now you are an expert on rainbows. My information came from Wikipedia which makes us all experts.
