Rainbow on Lake St Clair
The weather on Lake St. Clair changed from cool to warm to rainy to sunny to windy to ... every couple of minutes, then a beautiful rainbow appeared. Author Donald Ahrens in his text Meteorology Today describes a rainbow as "one of the most spectacular light shows observed on earth". Indeed the traditional rainbow is sunlight spread out into its spectrum of colors and diverted to the eye of the observer by water droplets. The "bow" part of the word describes the fact that the rainbow is a group of nearly circular arcs of color all having a common center. To sum it all up a rainbow is awesome eye candy!
