Lunar Rainbow/Moonbow

Recommended Posts

Me and my boyfriend were so fortunate enough to witness a Lunar Rainbow in Tresta Voe, stretching from Semblister to Bixter roughly.


It happened about 9pm last night (Oct 16th) and was the first time we had ever witnessed such a phenomenon.


I googled it and came up with some results (good ol wikipedia)




I just wondered if anyone else has seen a Moonbow too?

I've seen one before. Weird thing to see; like looking at a monochrome rainbow - but not quite; couldn't tell if the thing actually had colour, or whether I was just imagining those.

Moonbows are coloured, it's just that the colours are difficult to make out due to the low light levels.

I've always wanted to see one of those.


I suppose you can get them in doubles and triples too ?


(I've only seen a triple normal rainbow once.)



I pondered once it would be nice to have a rainbow making machine, though enquiries suggest I'd need planning permission and it might be illlegally a hazard to planes :-(
