A Rainbow Smile?
This evening, my son Dane saw this amazing rainbow high in the sky. We have never seen anything like it before.
The explanation: What looks like an upside-down rainbow is actually a rare atmospheric spectacle called a circumzenithal arc. According to the San Francisco Chronicle: “it’s an unusual phenomenon caused by sunlight shining through a thin, invisible screen of tiny ice crystals high in the sky and has nothing at all to do with the rain.”
We personally like to think it's God's way of smiling at us...
