unusual colors in sky

Are there rainbows without rain?

While sitting outside I noticed a patch of extra color in the sky. At first it was fiery red/orange then when I ran to get camera and came back it was more blue/green then almost full rainbow colors. BUT there was no rain, and it wasn't arched across the sky...just one patch? This was above Mill City Oregon 6.22.13 noticed around 1 pm

cari is incorrect....it's from the geoengineering aerosol spray. from the planes. the 'clouds' disperse and the sun reflects of the particles (like aluminium) in the atmosphere and creates faux-bows. they do not have the same color sequence as real.
