Over Halloween weekend 2016, we came across this amazing ghost rainbow when the low clouds were rolling over the Black Rock Desert. It was an awesome sight! Ghost rainbows, also known as fog bows are made up of tiny water droplets, due to the small size of the water droplets light is not reflected and refracted (as they are in rainbows, with larger droplets) within the drops, but is diffracted by them instead which produces a pale, broad bow! Cool!
