This is not rare at all. I've seen many of these in South Africa. The guy on the video sounds like he just discovered Atlantis - had he any knowledge of how light and prisms work, he'd know better

lol crazy rainbow dude!

I saw a double rainbow the other day and one of the tips appeared to be going into a church spire, I'd hate to think what crazy rainbow man would make of that

Haha I think he's quite obviously having his mind totally blown by the double rainbow while on mushrooms or something similar. Maybe acid.

Seeing something like that on shrooms would be pretty awesome, depending on your dose probably mind blowing

Theres always a first time I guess. Seen plenty of these myself. Then again I cant call the guy too overly overacting since the night I saw my first Iridium Flare it was a huge one and I raced inside thinking id just had a UFO beam pointed at me


Hopefully the hiker did some research when he got home, or he'll be a little embarrassed when he finds out its not as rare as he might think.

I must say he sounds like he is in total heaven.
The only time I have heard a man say Oh my God and cry is.... Nevermind. That is something totally different. I think



He needs a smoke after that one though.

I will have whatever he is having.

Maybe he was almost killed by a bear the night before and is just happy to be alive.

I saw a quadruple rainbow once, would this guy have literally died from exhileration?

Typical responses here. Jokes about orgasms and drugs and those who are used to double rainbows and fail to see the significance in it.

Our planet is beautiful, and the sky in itself is a miraculous canvas. It should be enough in itself to bring any human being to tears. We find ourselves crying over absolutely stupid things like doomed relationships and insipid movies but feel like another man's emotional response to the beauty of earth is humorous. We should be in perpetual awe of our surroundings when it looks like this, whether it is uploaded to youtube or not.

edit: I posted a different video but maybe it doesn't belong on this thread so I removed it.

I wouldn't go that far... I got quite a bit of enjoyment out of his awe and excitement. I'm sure most of us won't admit it, but I was slightly jealous he could be that moved by something as simple and elemental as a rainbow.

I have to say I did share some sentiment with the guy (wether tripping out on something or not.) I've been there after a few cans on the field gazing up at the stars, and suddenly being overcome (either by emotion or just the alcohol) and everything else just doesn't matter for those few hours.

We talk about finding enlightenment, well for this guy that Double Rainbow might be a change in his life. I know my Journey started in 2006 when I went to see the Solar Eclipse in Turkey.

I wish him well.

I just about fell off my chair laughing. The best part starts at 2.29.

I saw one of these myself recently, a pretty awesome sight lol. I only wish I had a video camera because there was thunder and everything.

-MH

I love rainbows


Really? I thought that was impossible, as it is only visible opposite the sun and its location is dependent on your point of view. As you move, the rainbow moves. You shouldn't be able to ever reach the end of a rainbow.

www.photocentric.net...

Had to laugh, this is from Wikipedia's rainbow entry, looking for a quote for this lady:


According to the laws of physics, if you see a "Double Rainbow", and if it goes "All the Way" then you may start to cry and wonder what a double rainow really means.

The Irish leprechaun's secret hiding place for his pot of gold is usually said to be at the end of the rainbow. This place is impossible to reach, because the rainbow is an optical effect which depends on the location of the viewer. When walking towards the end of a rainbow, it will appear to "move" further away (two people who simultaneously observe a rainbow at different locations will disagree about where a rainbow is).

Source



Someone may want to rewrite that. lol
We drove right through the end of a rainbow too. On a two lane highway in Mississippi. It was awsome. The kids were freaking out. Sadly no gold just black top.

That is really good...I laughed. The narrative is good. Why did it stop...is there a longer version?

I've seen sky things that make you want to reach for a camera and no matter how spectacular the scene appears to be, they always look tame and mundane on film. I can only imagine how this looked in person...I mean this is acid quality living here. I'm surprised the guy didn't break down completely...

effit this guy needs to be famous or however they do it. Even your description, after seeing the vid only once with distractions on all around, is cracking me up

'...what does it mean???'
