fire rainbows

when i was riding in my parent's car on the way to the atlanta airport early this year, i saw the strangest rainbow in the sky. it was horizontal and so subtle that i didn't even know if it was my mind playing tricks on me. i kept looking away and then looking back and it was still there and it was REAL!

i am pretty sure that what i saw was a fire rainbow. it's a rare occurence that only occurs when the sun is high in the sky and the ice crystals on cirrus clouds reflect the sun.

how amazing!
