Circumzenithal Phenomena spotted over Fair Oak

A rainbow smile

A rainbow smile

There are strange omens in the sky over Fair Oak . Eastleigh News contributor Peter Stewart spotted this fine example of a circumzenithal rainbow earlier this evening.

This is either a sign from the Lord that he is happy with the state of things in the borough or else it is a naturally occurring optical phenomen caused by light refracting through high altitude ice crystals – normal rainbows are caused by water droplets.

Usually found in arctic regions, it is quite rare to see a  circumzenithal rainbow this far south.
