The digital camera was sitting on a tripod in the family room so I rushed it out and took a 15 sec exposure picture. It was amazing. In the picture the colors of the rainbow revealed themselves. It may have been the best picture I have ever taken. However there was no memory card in the camera, so after displaying the picture on the preview screen the camera then tossed it to bit heaven.
I ran back into the house and found the memory card, but by the time I got it in the camera the rainbow was gone.
Thinking about it, the only time you could see a rainbow like this would be to have the following:
- It must be late enough to be dark
- There must be a full moon, or nearly a full moon
- There needs to be rain on the opposite side of the sky as the moon
