A RAINBOW AT NIGHT (3/26/11) Ethan Tweedie of Kamuela, Hawaii, recorded this spectacular example of a rainbow long after dark. "It was a moonbow," explains Tweedie. The bright moon played the role of sun, illuminating nightime raindrops falling through the damp Hawaiian air. "I've been trying to photograph a moonbow for a long time. Last night I was driving back from the Volcano there it was!" Tweedie's long exposure revealed something even more rare: a secondary moonbow.

Iao Valley State Park in Maui is a beautiful, lush place for a hike, but the land also holds some interesting history. It was in this spot in 1790 that King Kamehameha defeated Maui's army and changed the fate of Hawaii. The win allowed him to move forward with his mission of uniting the Hawaiian islands.

MOONBOW OVER HAWAII - #2458 The light of a nearly-full moon formed this moonbow in a light rain over Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island of Hawaii. This view is centered on the star-poor sky region of the constellation Lynx, but is helped out a bit by the planet Mars shining at upper left.
