CHASING RAINBOWS OVER GLOUCESTER

Last night’s lovely rainbow, from the Back Shore and Brace Cove. For a few moments it was a partial double rainbow.

 

MAGICAL CRESCENTS, HALOS, AND RAINBOW COLORS SURROUNDING THE #ECLIPSE

Hello Astronomy Friends and Paul T. Morrrison, All my photos from after the peak of the eclipse (around 3:05) have beautiful violet or green crescents, and swirly aurora borealis-like colors in the clouds around the sun. Even a bird that flew through the scene has a rainbow light shining through its wings. I wonder why is this? Thank you if you can help.

The bird is blurry, but you can see the rainbow effect.

Stopping for a moment to take a photo when it began to thunderstorm, again! I love that you can see the reflection of the rainbow in the pond water.

Chasing Rainbows (and Storm Clouds)

The beautiful double rainbow late Saturday afternoon had faded, but I did see this on my way home.

The sky was so gorgeous I next stopped at Smith’s Cove to catch the end of the setting sun. The hues quickly changed from vivid yellow-orange to orange-violet-pink.
