So I was driving near my house and I saw the most incredible rainbow in my life… The bad news was I only had my crappy IPhone camera to take a picture of it. It was much larger than the pictures show and had 13 visible color layers.. Boy I wish I had my good camera to really get all the layers and the size right, but this is the best I could do…


In any case it was inspiring, and I wonder if the solar activity was enhancing it.

ENJOY

I have always believed that rainbows have seven stripes - how can a rainbow have more than 7?

Unless it was a double rainbow, in which case it would have had 14
stripes.

Solar activity has nothing to do with the rainbows. Its caused by sunlight refracting off falling rain. Nothing more and nothing less.

The height and brilliance of them is determined by the height of the sun at the time of observation. They are at their best during early morning and late afternoon

If the water droplets are small enough you can get smaller areas of really intense colours below the primary bow. They are called supernumeraries

I know what you mean and I'm not trying to be a jerk, but is not sunlight a type of solar activity?
I'm just saying!

That's a pretty snazzy rainbow you have their. You just need to find the bowl of Lucky Charms at the end of it.

It wasn't what we see as a double rainbow. Though the camera couldn't really get a good picture of all the layers you can still see many of them in the picture as waves below the primary colors. Under the normal eye this thing looked a half mile wide and was much closer than the camera could show.

Another interesting part is there wasn't very much rain associated with it. I was about four miles from my house and from my view the rainbow was very close to my house, but when I got home the ground was dry.

I think the really different part that I have never seen even in pictures is the waves below the primary colors. If you can zoom in on the picture and you can see them, now they were all colors with the naked eye. One of them was the most brilliant violet I have ever seen though I have seen that color but extremely faint.

Man, if I had my canon camera I would have had some really crazy pictures.
