A Fire Rainbow was seen over Point Arena.

Jan Jewell spotted the Circumhorizontal Arc, also called a Fire Rainbow, a few weeks ago.


A Common Raven can be seen flying by on the right. This phenomenon is caused by the refraction of sunlight in ice crystals found certain clouds, in particular cirrus clouds.

Here is another example of a fire rainbow, this one taken by Peggy Berryhill.
