    A "Fire Rainbow" spotted over South Florida. They're not really fire OR rainbows. Actually they're a relatively rare weather phenomenon caused by clouds of water droplets of nearly uniform size, according to a release by NASA. These clouds diffract, or bend, light in a similar manner, which separates out light into different wavelengths, or colors.

    Photo of the day: Rare ‘fire rainbow’ spotted in Florida sky A “fire rainbow,” also known as an iridescent cloud, appears in the sky on July 31 over South Florida. The rare phenomenon occurs when clouds containing uniformly sized water droplets diffract light and scatter wavelengths into a colorful ring-like pattern. Iridescent clouds are formed by a different process than rainbows, which occur through refraction and reflection instead of diffraction.

When I see Rainbows I'm always reminded of Gods promise to mankind . The Rainbow is the sign of the covenant to remind us of his promise.. 11 I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be cut off by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth." Genesis 9 verse11

Norfolk Nebraska clouds before the storm.... 4/14/2012 "Mammatus clouds are most often associated with the anvil cloud and severe thunderstorms. They often extend from the base of a cumulonimbus, but may also be found under altocumulus, altostratus, stratocumulus, and cirrus clouds, as well as volcanic ash clouds. When occurring in cumulonimbus, mammatus are often indicative of a particularly strong storm or perhaps even a tornadic storm."
