Inverted Rainbows with Captivating Double Sundog

Recently, my family and myself visited Cayton Bay─a scenic beach in Scarborough, North Yorkshire (in England, UK). Near the end of the day, when we were on the way back to the car, we looked up into the sky and saw an amazing show of lights…

Inverted Rainbow

Upside-Down Rainbow rainbow that I photographed

We saw an intersecting upside-down rainbow, complete with a double Sundog! It’s not that clear on my phone-camera images, but if you look above, you’ll notice that the upside-down (inverted) rainbow intersects with a fainter ‘standard’ rainbow.

Upside-Down Rainbow in Scarborough

The image above shows what appeared below this double-rainbow. As the Sun was setting, twin ‘Sun Dogs’ (this is where it looks like there are more than one Sun in the sky) appeared at each end of the lower rainbow. Again, this photo doesn’t do the sight justice. Just before I attained my camera, the Sun-dogs were almost as bright as the Sun itself! I think that these Sun Dogs and created when light from the Sun refracts off bright-white clouds, giving the impression that another Sun is present. Of course, Scarborough isn’t on the planet of tatooine.

In the shot above, I attempted to get the whole scene in one photograph by turning around my phone into portrait orientation, but couldn’t get the entire scene. I wish I had a better camera on me that day to capture this once-in-a-lifetime scene, but I hope you can gain a fair idea of this wonderful sight of God’s creation.

I just found some similar rainbow phenomenons over here, and I’m sure there are other photos out there better than these, too. Have you ever seen anything like this before? If so, let me know in the comment section below…

It was only recently I snapped this double rainbow from my house window (the second rainbow is really faint).
