Yes. I know how that sounds but that pretty much describes what I need help with.
This afternoon I was visiting my mother and we were going down the road to get some milk before we headed back to her house. I am always one to keep
my eyes on the skies because one never knows what you might see and with all the meteor sightings lately and my living in an area reporting those
sightings I am in eagle eye mode.
So I am looking and I see a rainbow that is not a regular rainbow. I called it a sky rainbow because it was just in the clouds. There was no arc. It
was not coming down to the ground... it was just floating overhead. I remarked on it to my mother and trying to get her to look when the "rainbow"
changes. A white light appears to grow in the middle of the "rainbow" that made it appear as if someone had cut a hole into the blue sky and there was
nothing but white light behind it. It is hard to describe it, as it looked 3D enough to see beyond the blue part of the sky to the white light behind
it with space in between.
So I am pointing and telling her to look and she pulls into a store parking lot so she can see what I am talking about. It appears the same way to
her. As we are several minutes into watching it, the light seems to pulsate. The colors change. Sometimes it lengthens or widens or both. It pulsates
a bright pink, red, yellow, a bluish purple, to green. Not in that order and not all separately. Sometimes they were combined. So we continue to watch
as it starts to get smaller. It disappears in the same manner that the picture on a really old tv used to. It just gets smaller and smaller until it
is just gone.
We were discussing what it could have been when it appeared again all the way on the other side of the sky. It behaved the exact same way. Both lasted
about 10 minutes a piece. We got home and I tried to search for something similar online but didn't even know what to google to start out with. I am
in my 30's and my mom is in her 60's and neither of us have seen anything like this before. I really just kept waiting for something to come out of
the "hole" the white light was coming out of.
Maybe the Kraken, maybe a disgruntled leprechaun... I am not sure.
I would just really like to know what this phenomenon is so I can know what I saw. I know it sounds nutty but I can not be the only person who has
ever seen something like that. I am sure it occurs, I just have never experienced it. If anybody knows what it was it has to be someone on here and I
would greatly appreciate any help in naming this "floating rainbow".
