A Lunar Rainbow


There is such a thing as a rainbow at night. It is called a lunar rainbow. I once saw one, without understanding what it was. How could it be, I wondered? 

Finally, I saw a picture of one, an arched one, not the round ring around the moon kind. I knew. 

Some people are like rare lunar rainbows. In the dark night, they collect secondary light and reflect it back as a full spectrum of color. 

I have seen them. Perhaps it was you? I know.

Lunar rainbows -- or moonbows -- are so cool. There's a great pic of one on Gizmodo and others on Google images.

I think that I shall never see
a moonbow quite so rare
as you
might be.
