Wikipedia describes it as: (Physical Geography) a bow of prismatic colours similar to a rainbow, produced when sunlight shines through spray.
Sure enough, there was a large circular rainbow surrounding the sun up high in the gray sky. Of course you had to wear sunglasses to see it or go blind....but it was quite a marvel to see. I wanted a photo but if I pointed my little camera up there, I'd probably burn out the lens so I called Laurel Wineinger. Laurel is one of the gurus from the Photo Club. She mounted a special lens on her fancy camera and got a lovely photo for me. Thank you, Laurel. Now we can share it with all of you. I love the way she cleverly shielded the bright ball of sun with a palm tree. Awesome!!
