Believe it or not today actually turned out to be a nice day weather - wise across the area! Even though Lafayette, only hit a high of 48.1* degrees it seemed to feel warmer then that. Maybe all the sunshine had something to do with that?!?! lol. It created the illusion that it felt warmer because it looked like it should have felt warm! ;)
I even made it out to Armstrong park for a quick run around the pond. I also learned something I never knew lol.
A RAINBOW AT NIGHT: Recipe for a rainbow: Add bright sunlight to raindrops and voila!--a beautiful band of multi-colors arcs across the sky. With such an ingredient list, you might suppose that rainbows can only be seen during the day, yet on March 24th Ethan Tweedie of Kamuela, Hawaii, recorded this spectacular example long after dark:
"It was a moonbow," explains Tweedie. The bright moon played the role of sun, illuminating nightime raindrops falling through the damp Hawaiian air. "I've been trying to photograph a moonbow for a long time. Last night I was driving back from the Volcano there it was!"
Tweedie's long exposure revealed something even more rare: a secondary moonbow. It's the faint 'bow arciing above the brighter primary. Primary rainbows are caused by single reflections inside raindrops; secondary bows are caused by double reflections. It was a night to remember, indeed.
I wish you all a great evening and an Awesome Tuesday!
