double moonbow

last night i saw something that i never even considered possible. a double rainbow one hour after midnight. I was chasing a thunderstorm near aspen colorado when i parked on top of star mesa to try to get some photos of the lightning hitting snowmass colorado. the cell moved directly over me and i was getting hammered with hail and giant raindrops so i retreated to the truck to wait it out. after about ten min i turned the windshield wipers on and saw a faint white arc across the field in front of me. I grabbed my camera and did a hand held 30 second exposure through the windshield to brighten it up and see what the heck was out there. when the image popped up on the camera i immediately jumped out into the rain and lightning and started taking photos. I couldnt see the second moonbow but the lower one was clearly visible in the moonlight. really amazing experience.
