I was reading a couple other threads and it jogged my memory about a question I had wanted to ask ATS.
Has anyone ever seen a black rainbow? I have seen two in the past... 7 or 8 years. One of the times it was overcast, but if I remember correctly the 2nd time it was clear outside. Both were also during the day, not in the morning or night.
The two I have seen are dark gray/black "rainbows" for lack of a better word. They curve like one and are thin like a normal rainbow, they just aren't colorful. I could see them with the visible eye, but they were more defined and easier to see with sunglasses on.
I know there is a phenomenon called a white rainbow that can be seen in Hawaii ( www.magical-hawaii.com... ), but I haven't heard anyone talk about seeing a black version of a rainbow.
So am I the only one that has seen something odd like this or has anyone else seen or taken a picture of one?

I have not seen a White Rainbow and never heard of a Black Rainbow.
But, I have seen a Moonbow. At Cumberland Falls in Kentucky. You can only see the Moonbow when there is a Full Moon. There are only 2 places on the planet where this occurs. The other is somewhere in Africa.

I have never heard of a black rainbow. The idea does not sound plausible considering a rainbow is a refraction of light, not a physical object or material. That being said, the idea of black made me think of something else, something I even personally witnessed. Black line contrails!
Is this perhaps what you were thinking of?

I have seen a tartan fish! Oh wait, no that was tartar fish.
Ever seen the glow-in-the dark seagull? I haven't, but I'm sure someone has!
