Fire Rainbow

Forget the Double
Rainbow
, there’s a new celestial phenomenon that makes us yelp "OMG
what does this mean?"

Lisa Foss of Ely, Minnesota saw this brilliant display of what
some colloquially term a "fire rainbow" on Monday, while another
show popped up in Edgewood, Texas on Saturday.

The rainbows are caused by ice crystals in the thin, distant clouds
being at just the correct angle to refract the sunlight into the colors
of the prism.
