Thought I'd share this with you guys. Was sitting in my truck and saw this great rainbow forming. As I forgot my video camera at home I shot this with my webcam.



Love a good rainbow. I've

Love a good rainbow. I've seldom been in place to see a whole rainbow, rarer still a double rainbow (which of couse this is not) but, still a nece rainbow. I hope to some day see a whole double rainbow. I don't even know if that's possible. As a kid, rainbows got me started into science. Did I say I love a good rainbow... thanks.

complete double rainbows are

complete double rainbows are possible; as are complete triple rainbows. I've never seen a complete arc on a quadruple, but it *may* be possible.

Of course by the time you get to a quadruple it's kinda hard to see the whole arc at once...

(we used to get many, many raibows in our back yard)

I've always been fascinated

I've always been fascinated by rainbows. Also, I've always felt a fair amount of disappointment that you can't get to the end of one. I've never expected a pot of gold or anything like that...I've just wanted to be able to stand inside one.

Wow Mason, that's amazing! I love the electricity wires, the trucks, and the rainbow, all together! Did you find a pot of gold?

Mason Thanks, it is very


Thanks, it is very beautiful. I love how the sky on the "inside" of the rainbow is always brighter than the sky "outside"
