It's not a rainbow. It's a moonbow!

Who says only the sun can create rainbows? The moonbow or lunar rainbow is created when light from a very bright full moon less than 42ยบ high in the sky, is shining towards the rain opposite the moon. Moonbows are extremely rare. I've been doing astronomy since I was 10 and I have never come across one.
