    I saw this rainbow today at about 7.15 PM in North Yorkshire. It was almost directly above me and seemed to be on the edge of a cloud. It was "the wrong way up" as you can see in the thumbnail. The white line to the left is a plane vapour trail.

    Weird :eek: It was visible for a good 15 minutes. The only similar thing I have seen was a rainbow around the sun, directly above, at midday, in Brazil. Never seen anything like it in the UK and it certainly was not around the sun.

    I saw something strange like that in Mexico, a perfect circle rainbow in the sky right above me - and annoying one of the few times I didn't have my camera :wall:

    Quite cool seeing stuff like that in the UK :D

    I did but they were all exactly the same.


    Fraid not. The end of the rainbow was in the air and not on the ground. :D

    Thanks for that Madxgraphics. Never thought of looking it up. :thumb:

    Here's the one I took of the rainbow round the sun a few years back.
