Just finished supper before sundown this evening and saw this sight. Now the rainbow in itself isn't remarkable. What has me scratching my head a little is the 'ray' effect from due East over Vancouver. I think it's something to do with the rainbow because the rays centre was exactly in the middle of the bow had it been projected. Don't know what the proper name for this effect is, and if any passing astronomy buff knows what it is, I'd like to know. It's just that I've never seen this before.
Whatever it is, it's gorgeous.
BTW: The only photoshopping of this image was a crop and resize prior to upload. No rainbows were harmed in the making of this jpeg.
