Reflections and Refractions

 A lunar rainbow (also known as a moonbow, lunar bow, moon rainbow or white rainbow) is a rainbow produced by the moon rather than the sun. Moonbows are relatively faint, due to the smaller amount of light from the Moon. They are always in the opposite part of the sky from the moon. It is difficult for the human eye to discern colors in a moonbow because the light is usually too faint to excite the cone color receptors in human eyes. As a result, they often appear to be white. However, the colors in a moonbow do appear in long exposure photographs.


This photo was taken when the CHS Dance team visited New York City for the 2000 National Championships. This image was made during a tour of the Statue of Liberty, from the back of the boat, Miss Liberty.
