Here’s something you don’t see everyday, and it’s called a “Fire Rainbow”. This phenomenon occurs when “sunlight refracts off horizontal ice crystals in high-level cirrus clouds; the sun must be very high in the sky and it can not be seen at a latitude above 55degrees north (which includes Scotland and much of Canada) or below 55 degrees south.” Video after the break.

The unusual sighting of the horizontal rainbow was captured by Ukranian snapper Anton Jankovoy – using a camera set up with a large aperture to ‘soak up’ as much light as possible. The rare phenomenon is created by light reflected from ice crystals in high-up cirrus clouds.
