A pilot took this photo while flying through a rainbow.
Beautiful photo, but I’m pretty sure the laws of physics (and optics) prevents viewing a rainbow while IN it. Photoshop’d perhaps?

Hi Shannon, You make some valid points. I don’t know enough about physics or rainbows to address your comments. I did, however, find these relevant links: https://www.theguardian.com/science/2014/oct/29/fly-over-rainbow-break-laws-physics Plane passenger captures amazing rainbow picture http://t.co/4TJCcfDcb5 pic.twitter.com/3Fc9mvmUjo
Ah yes, the Guardian article called it what it is: polarization, not rainbow. It was due to the plastics in the window through which the photo was shot. Makes perfect sense. 😀
