I hope everyone is safe from the rages of Ophelia. Not forgetting the poor frightened animals too. xx
Hearing all the stories here. 3 people have died so far in Ireland with trees hitting cars. Can't for the life of me understand why anyone would venture out in a car in a hurricane!!!
A really strange golden hue in the atmosphere here in London. And a weird but slightly familiar smell in the air - reminds me of just before a sandstorm in Libya.

Pink rainbow

Post by Kitkat on Tue 08 Aug 2017, 19:32

A rare "pink rainbow" was spotted in the west of England on Monday evening.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-bristol-40861465

The phenomenon, seen in Bristol, Taunton and Yate, has been described as an "optical illusion" by experts.





This was the view at Bristol Harbour



In Taunton the sky turned a deep pink


People who photographed it described it as "amazing" and "pretty" on BBC Points West's Facebook page .
BBC Weather presenter Simon King said there was no specific name for the phenomenon, which was caused by a regular rainbow and a pink sunset happening at the same time.
"We've got a regular rainbow, which is caused by water droplets in the atmosphere reflecting the sunlight into the spectrum of different colours," he said.
"The other thing is a pinkish sunset caused by sunlight having to pass through a lot more atmosphere - due to the low sun angle late in the day - hence the shortwave colours - violets, blues, greens - are diminished and we only see the pinks and reds, giving the rainbow a pinkish colour."
