Image - Kerry O'Connor 25 July 2020

Today (Saturday 5 December) there has just been another spectacular double rainbow over Old Sarum. For those who didn't see the explanation for a similar phenomenon earlier this year, here it is again....


Original news story:

This image taken on Saturday 25 July was sent to the website by Kerry O'Connor, accompanied by the following information:

"In a double rainbow the colours are reversed in the outer arc, with red on the inside, as the light is reflected inside each raindrop twice. The violet comes from the higher and the red from the lower drops. The outer bow is wider and fainter and between the two bows the sky is darker as less of the light is scattered by the raindrops towards the viewer."
