View to the northwest of green aurora with red beam at Emerald Lake in Yoho National Park, British Columbia, Canada taken on Sept 23, 2001 at about 7:00 UT. The red auroral beam lasted for about 20 minutes, moved very little laterally, and eventually lengthened to a narrow arc that went almost directly overhead extending from the NW horizon to the SE horizon. Fuji Superia 800 film, 21-35mm lens at f/3.5 for 1 minute. Copyright (c) 2001 David Vier dvier@ucsd.edu

Unusual Rainbow (wide view)

Submitted by: dvier at Fri Sep 20 09:39:01 2002 UTC

This rainbow was observed on the outskirts of Anchorage, Alaska at Potter Marsh about a half hour before sunset. This is a wide angle (21mm lens) view. Note the unusual feature (an extra arc) at the lower left end of the rainbow. See the accompanying photos for more detail. Copyright (c) 2002 David Vier

Unusual Rainbow (normal view)

Submitted by: dvier at Fri Sep 20 09:39:01 2002 UTC

This rainbow photo was taken ~10 minutes before the "wide view" photo. Camera lens was zoomed to ~50mm. Note the extra arc forming a "v" shape with the primary bow. See the "zoom view" photo for more detail. Copyright (c) 2002 David Vier

Unusual Rainbow (zoom view)

Submitted by: dvier at Fri Sep 20 09:38:01 2002 UTC

This rainbow photo was taken ~5 minutes before the "wide view" photo. Camera lens was zoomed to ~135mm. Note the extra arc forming a "v" shape with the primary bow and to the left the secondary bow, with color sequence reversed, is also visible. A colleague and I have speculated that the extra bow forming the "v" with the primary is due to the sun's rays initially reflecting off a watery surface in the marsh (or perhaps the ocean which was about 100 meters behind me), continuing to the raindrops, and then internally reflecting within the drops and back to the observer. This "reflected primary " bow would thus be offset upward from the main primary bow by twice the sun's elevation. Does anyone have any other thoughts on the process involved in creating this extra bow? I have seen many rainbows, but never one with this "v" effect. Has anyone else observed this? Discussion within the forum would be appreciated, or contact me at dvier@ucsd.edu. Copyright (c) 2002 David Vier
