On a lighter note

When we were outside today, there was a funny, laying-down rainbow in the sky above us. Instead of being the traditional “bow” going up from the ground, over and back down, it was a half-circle centered on a spot in the sky directly above us. We called it a “lazy rainbow” (because it was lying down on the job) and enjoyed watching it as it rotated a bit around it’s central point during the time we were out there.

Neato.

[Edit: turns out it’s a phenomenon called a circumzenith arc. Here’s a super cool photo of one above some trees. Wow.]
