Horiz Rainbow

Today at approx. 2 the rare phenomenon of of an arc horizontal rainbow was observed at Cape Kiwanda as we were sitting outside the Stimulus Cafe. perfect conditions prevailed with cirrus clouds at 20,000 ft. Light refraction at the correct angle and it was a beautiful sight!! didn't last more than 20 min. As conditions changed. another lower set of puffier clouds created an Opening to this dramatic view. I invited every passerby to look up as well as the staff in the Cafe who also came put to enjoy!
