I captured this amazingly bright circumzenithal arc (aka: ‘upside down rainbow’) yesterday afternoon in the skies above Surrey, England. It was very bright and accompanied by a glorious sundog on one side, which was too bright for my phone to capture the colors.

Okay, it’s not a rocket. It’s a lighthouse in Grand Haven, Michigan. But with a little imagination …

There’s always one out there…
Bruce MacKay of The Darker Arts captured this photo in late April 2017. He wrote:
I had about 4 kilometers of coastline free and just as the aurora was flaring up, someone came along and decided to set up straight in front of me and flash their torch around. I asked them to kindy move out of my scene, but got no response, so I walked over to ask again. That was when the lights came alive and a friend hit the shoot button on my camera just in time to create this selfie!
