Night Sky

All day yesterday it threatened rain but none actually fell, though there was moisture in the air. At about 10pm I went out with my dog. There was a bright moon. As I headed home I saw what appeared to be a rainbow in the night sky! Having done a little research online it turned out that what I saw was a rare phenomenon called a ‘Lunar Rainbow’. Apparently it only occurs when the moon is at a particular angle and there is moisture in the air. I attempted a picture with the camera on my phone but unfortunately the result was very poor.
