Moonbow!
« on: October 30, 2012, 07:31:22 AM »
No Photoshop here - I was just starting my morning run and noticed this. I quickly ran back inside and grabbed my camera. I have heard about them but never noticed one this spectacular!

I am starting to think the green streak is a meteorite - I think I am going to play the lottery today.

Awesome, congrats on the capture.  I agree with the possible meteorite.

I don't think so - the white spots are stars. I will take a closer look tonight to make sure - didn't have a lot of time with it this morning.

It rather looks like a landing Reptilian spaceship. It's even more rare than a meteorite, so bid double pot today. :D

Andy, lovely picture. What were your settings? I tried taking one 4 years back with my 300D and failed miserably :P

And I agree with marekjoz, definitely an alien ship   ;)

Cool moonbow!   The brightest 'star' actually may be Jupiter! The fainter point to the lower left of it should be Aldebaran.

Had a double moonbow here the other night, by the time I grabbed a camera it had swirled into a star/cog shape.

Is it on Cape Canaveral, FL? :)

Thanks  - I used my 5D Mark III    TS-E 17 mm    f/4.0    5 sec    400 ISO for the one with the meteorite the other was the same except ISO 800.

Beautiful!

According to Wikipedia, it's not really a moonbow, but a halo around the moon produced by ice crystals in cirrus clouds. I still think it's beautiful, screw you Wikipedia! :P
