Apparently there is an upside down rainbow in the skies over Sussex right now.


Rather than being caused by raindrops, it is the result of freak atmospheric conditions rarely seen outside the North and South Poles.

While normal rainbows are formed when light penetrates raindrops and emerges on the other side without changing direction, the smile is formed when sunlight shines through millions of tiny ice crystals in cirrus and cirrus stratus clouds.

Cool


I have seen a completely round rainbow, also as the result of freak atmospheric conditions.

Mother nature keeps us amused

Thats not a rainbow at all

What we have here is a type of infrequent halo, caused by the refraction of ice crystals in a semi transparent layer of cirrostratus cloud.

This one is known as a supralaterel arc

Whoever took the photos were extremely lucky to get this.....they very rarely occur (literally once in a lifetime)!!!!

I'm glad you posted your comment ChemBreather because even though I read the explanation in the article and the supporting comments in this thread, I too, think its a result of the chemtrails laid across the skies and not atmospheric phenomena.

I've seen them before. We will see them again if we keep watch.

As you said, and I agree, I could be wrong.
