Rare photo of the end of the rainbow February 8th, 2009, by Gary Robbins, science writer-editor
CLICK IMAGE to enlarge.
We received several storm photographs from readers Saturday, including one that depicted something thats very, very rarely seen, especially in Southern California the end of the rainbow.
A reader, who has finally been identified as Jason Erdkamp of Lake Forest, took this photo while traveling north on the 241 Tollroad in northeast Orange County. Stefanie Sullivan, a forecaster for the National Weather Service, says shes never seen the end of the rainbow, partly because there are so many buildings and other structures in Southern California. I havent, either.
And I lived in South Florida for 5 years. South Florida is very flat, and the afternoon storm activity produces many rainbows. But I never saw the end of one.
Cool Picture. Thanks for posting the link. I didn’t even know there was a visible end to a rainbow like it shows in the picture.
So who stole the pot of gold?
Very welcome. I am hoping someone with the techno-skills with post a clip of it soon
Ya think he will wear this on Fat Tuesday?
Actually an interesting photo. Seems to splash off the pavement.
I told you God thinks the whole global warming bit is just imaginative human folly. I see at the end of God’s rainbow is not a pot of gold, but an SUV in the OC. Look ALGORE if you believed in God, he’s tellin’ ya somethin’. Try listening you blow hard, super egocentric maniac.
I saw an interesting rainbow in Iceland..from the start to the other end..and did I have my camera? NO we were on our way back from the hospital...this kind of rainbow is so special. Thanks for sharing.
I ain’t touchin’ his lucky charms.
Too bad the picture is missing Michelle behind him dressed in black leather with the whip.
What’s the garbage doing in front? Is the allegorical in South Texas?
At the end of a rainbow, you’ll find a pot of gold
At the end of a story, you’ll find it’s all been told
But our love has a treasure our hearts always spend
And it has a story without any end
At the end of a river, the water stops its flow
At the end of a highway, there’s no place you can go
But just tell me you love and you are only mine
And our love will go on ‘til the end of time
NoLibZone takes the cake- that’s outstanding!
That’s a perfect example of what can happen when folks keep blowing sunshine up a person’s arse.
It’s screaming photoshop. I don’t care what the caption says.
Whoever the guy who “created” that photo can be assured of a very well paid job with Ahmedenejad.
Just go this crude message from “BlueDragon”
“youre an asshole”
Does anyone who this guy is?
It would be viewable from each succeeding car, just as this one picture taken from the passenger seat.
Each is sending up a 15-foot spray just like the spray from a garden hose (but more powerful) that produces a small rainbow depending on the angle of the sun.
Isn’t he that gay retarded guy?
Really a phenomenal sight to see.
Incredible- At least it disproves the “photoshop” theory
My wife and I saw one in Colorado, while traveling through the town of Virginia Dale (which is a magical place all it’s own!).
(Did not have a camera with me at the time. Most unfortunately.)
No pot of gold at the end of that rainbow? Damn!
No photoshop. We were driving through a rainstorm but the sun was shining at the same time through the edge of the clouds. We were so amazed we pulled off on an offramp and sat there watching it for about ten minutes. It was really, really bright yellow and amber at the very bottom, and very large.
That’s sweet over Potala Palace.
We drove through the end of a rainbow circa 1970 heading east on H1 expressway near Honolulu. It looked just like that. The photo is real alright.
I am sure Bill is quite sad this is not really his wife. LOL. Great find! She actually looks hot right there and I am a woman.
Now that is just awesome cool! Thanks for posting.
I saw a triple rainbow once in the Yukon Territory. It was so cool, magnificent...bright, shimmering.
So who stole the pot of gold?
No idea where it’s from. It has circulated in the construction industry for years.
There just is something special about the arctic circle parts of the world..magic..
