We got pictures of the perimeter arch at Contact 24 from Reporter 24 about nick Syl. A resident of Zbylitowska Góra stressed that he had seen such a phenomenon for the first time. "Before I saw it probably took a while – I called my wife and she watched the internet for what it is. She also took pictures with her mobile phone" – he wrote.
An extremely rare phenomenon
The arc is a rare optical phenomenon of the halo type. It is formed in the atmosphere after the fall of sunlight on small ice crystals in the form of hexagonal plates.
The light rays break at a large angle (almost 90 degrees), which makes the colors of the rainbow especially separate. Thanks to this, the inverted rainbow has clearer colors than traditional.
To create this phenomenon, it is necessary to set the sun properly – it can not be higher than 32.5 degrees above the horizon. The most beautiful arches are formed when the sun is between 15 and 20 degrees above the horizon.
It lasted about 15 minutes
The author described that the rainbow made a big impression on him.
"I did not expect it – you can not see it in the pictures, but it was very bright and yet the colors were completely visible." The first rainbow was a normal arch like it after the rain, but for a moment it appeared much more centrally in the sky. At that time (at 13.50 to 14.15) about three rainbow, with the fact that this was the largest, gradually fades, I did not see anymore, it lasted about 15 minutes "- reported the author to the pictures.
