Fire Rainbow - amazing phenomenon

Isn't it amazing? This is real and there are more at this incredible blog I've just found: Dare to Think by Cathy.
She explains: "It is called a "fire rainbow" and lasted about 1 hour. For this to occur the clouds must be cirrus, 20,000 feet in the air, and just the right amount of ice crystals and sun must hit the clouds at precisely 58 degrees." There are more photos at her blog.

Wow that is so beautiful, words wouldn't even do it justice. If this is only a picture, imagine how much more beautiful it would be to see it through your own eyes!

That is an amazing picture Ana. Nice find.

In Cathy's blog there are photos her brother too from a real event.
I'm really amazed!

I've stumble upon because I found the title of the blog interesting.
It really is.

I caught a tiny cloud rainbow in January or Febuary and posted a pic on my blog. My picture color is not very pronounced.

Perhaps because you camera is not very good. This is a AP photo.
