Wow! Earlier tonight – 17th. October 2016 – I saw a rainbow in the dark – a ghost of a rainbow – or Moonbow. What a super, natural phenomenon! The Moon was just passed full and incredibly bright. Opposite on the western horizon – I could see a beautiful grey arc in the sky ending right where my Mother lives in Torrington – it must have been raining there. I had planned to go out earlier while still half-light – but with one thing and another – I was late venturing out at about 9:30-ish. If I had gone out at my planned time I would have missed the Dark Rainbow – and would now probably have to wait another fifty odd years to see another one – my lifetime. Somethings I guess are just written in the stars – they’re unavoidable. While tinkering around late at night with this site – and suture detail from Tip’s brow –
I was amazed how like the Milky Way it appeared when flipped and simply solarized. If you click on the dark image to enlarge it – the similarity is even more astounding. I wish I could decipher what it all means other than everything is connected and happens for a reason – I know that much. Sorry no images of the Dark Rainbow – ‘just’ in my head. Wow!
