Birth of A Rainbow May 5, 2011

The unstable atmosphere was getting more agitated all day with increased amounts of virga that eventually reached the ground as scattered sheets of rain showers training east in a narrow corridor. As a weather spotter I sensed that an interesting weather event was imminent. I waited for over 3 hours with a front row seat on the causeway before my intuition came true - a rainbow appeared over West Island. With the sun breaking through at the end of the day and light showers still active, the ingredients of a rainbow coalesced perfectly over West Island. No two people ever see the exact same rainbow because of the precise angle, however many witnessed a double-rainbow from the causeway as it arced over the island looking east. The phenomena lasted less than 2 minutes.
