    Just finished watching a TV documentary featuring Polar Bears when the camera captured what the narrator called a white rainbow. I had never seen one nor had I ever heard of it. So in case there are more people like me, here is an article on the phenomenon....

    I like the alternative name of “fogbow”

    Well, the narrator was none other than Kate Winslet who if you remember once played a character involved in a major fog incident.

    I'll have to add the white rainbow to my list of natural light phenomena that I've never witnessed. Northern Lights, St. Elmo's Fire to name a couple.

    When water goes through huge water beads, and every drop goes about as a crystal that refracts and reflects light. The light is then appropriated in the shades of the optical range (RGBYV). In any case, when light goes through littler beads of water, the light is diffracted (or diffused), bringing about an impact that isn't as brilliant or soaked as a rainbow. This marvel is what is known as a mist bow. This is natural but if you have any environmental problem then contact the famous environmental problem resolver like Allgreenrecycler and many other famous companies.

    Here's another visual effect I'd like to see while gazing skyward. Never heard of Fallstreak Holes until today when I accidentally found them on the internet. At first I thought it was a joke but it appears to be genuine.
