APOD: A Full Circle Rainbow over Australia (2014 Sep 30) Image Credit & Copyright: Colin Leonhardt (Birdseye View Photography) http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140930.html Explanation: Have you ever seen an entire rainbow? From the ground, typically, only the top portion of a rainbow is visible because directions toward the ground have fewer raindrops. From the air, though, the entire 360 degree circle of a rainbow is more commonly visible. Pictured here, a full circle rainbow was captured over Cottesloe Beach near Perth, Australia last year by a helicopter flying between a setting sun and a downpour. An observer-dependent phenomenon primarily caused by the internal reflection of sunlight by raindrops, the 84-degree diameter rainbow followed the helicopter, intact, for about 5 kilometers. As a bonus, a second rainbow that was more faint and color-reversed was visible outside the first. http://www.birdseyeviewphotography.com.au Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=140930 #APOD
