I first posted these photos on 12-29, and decided to post them again for Sky Watch. This was the most beautiful sky I’ve ever seen, and I took over 160 photos in an hour. Below are three of the photos.
At times, there were 6 rainbows visible at once, spread out across the sky. The largest one would darken in color and then fade away to nothing, then return even brighter. It was absolutely beautiful. At one time there were two rainbows visible, with one inverted over the other, forming what looked like an elongated oval shape. To the left of that, there was a large prism-colored rounded shape in the sky. At one point, the clouds looked like rolling ocean waves. Several jets also passed over during this, and the vapor trails from them just added to the drama in the sky. I have seen a double rainbow before, but never a half dozen rainbows at once, all turned in different directions in the middle of the sky! It was truly an awesome sight.
