Fire Rainbows: Another Proof That Nature Never Ceases To Amaze Us

Fire Rainbows or circumhorizontal arc is another type of rainbow which we witness from time to time. This phenomenon happens in the sky when the sun is higher than 58°. The other reason for this occurrence is thin and feathery cirrus clouds emerging in higher altitudes. The temperature should be low for this breath-taking scenario to happen. So, they are made from ice crystals. When it’s aligned optimally, the crystals act as a prism and reflect the reminiscent of a rainbow.  

There is a misconception that this type of rainbows is rare. The truth is, these rainbows occur depending on the location of a particular latitude.  In the United States, Fire Rainbows are common to see, especially in summer. But when it comes to Middle and Northern Europe, this becomes quite rare to spot.
