They Were Told To Go Outside And Look At The Sky. This Is What They Saw!

Fogbows are formed in the same way as rainbows in that light is reflected inside tiny water droplets and emerges to form a large circle or arc of approximately 42°C centred on the antisolar point, opposite the sun. 

Fogbows are also called white rainbows, cloudbows, or rainbow ghosts.

Fogbow colours are whiteish because the fogbows formed in each colour overlap considerably. Sometimes the inner and outer edges show faint bluish and reddish tinges. The actual colours are a result of the actual size of the water droplets.

When seen from within cloud or fog, the fogbow may be a partial or full circle. 

What a spectacular sight! If you enjoyed nature's beautiful phenomenon, share this post with your friends.
