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.

Shot entirely by the light of the full moon - I love that!!!

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.
