This Photographer Got Lucky Enough To Capture A Fire Rainbow Which Made The Followers ‘Go Awe’

It’s a fact that nature has the power to make us all fall in love with her. If you say no, well, I suggest you watch the sunrise for a week and you will realize how nature shines gloriously every morning, being different from the other. 

When it comes to certain phenomena in nature, not everyone is lucky to witness them. Circumhorizontal arcs aka fire rainbows are one of them. There is no fire as per say. But this happens as the sun is positioned higher than 58° in the sky. In the meantime, the temperature of the clouds remains low which leads to hexagonal ice crystals. When the alignment is optimal, it produces refraction of a rainbow. 

The fire rainbows are made according to a particular latitude on the location, though some people believe these rainbows are rare to see. Fire rainbows are common in the United States but hard to spot in mid-latitude and in Northern Europe.

”Witnessed a pretty cool phenomenon out on lake Sammamish today,” Cessna shared her luck on her Instagram. “A horizontal rainbow! To me, it was a little reminder to hold onto hope and love instead of fear and panic in these unknown times. Stay safe out there, friends”
