SkyWatch Friday 4.51: Driving Through a Rainbow

Looking east
On June 7 we had mountain rain showers passing through. There are a lot of rainbows here and we are always in awe of them. You can see several in one day here in the mountains. On this evening of the photographs, we had three rainbows in the south and east sky. This is one of them. Below is a photo of the western sky at the same time.
Looking west
My story is about yesterday, as I was driving on High Bridge Hill in the village. We had more stormy clouds and sun yesterday — at the same time. We saw at least seven rainbows as we drove eight miles. And suddenly, going up the hill, we actually drove through three more rainbows! It was an awesome experience. You thought that your car would hit it but of course it didn't. It wasn't solid color, and it danced on the surface of the road and up the hood of the car. I hope all of you can someday be in a rainbow!
