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.

Pahoehoe, meaning "smooth, unbroken lava" in Hawaiian, is basaltic lava that has a smooth, billowy, undulating, or ropy surface. These surface features are due to the movement of very fluid lava under a congealing surface crust. Here, at the Kīlauea volcano, Hawaii, United States.
