In a period in which numerous unique natural phenomenons take place, caused by the reduced human activities, from the US there is a spectacular picture coming over, unique of its kind. The tiny body of water, just 8 km (5 miles) away from Seattle, in Washington, got wrapped up by a horizontal rainbow, extremely rare  phenomenal. The same author of the picture, Cessna Kutz, was speechless, and commented:

“I was happy to witness such an incredible moment. It brought me peace and hope and made me feel less anxious about our current circumstances”.

Despite the picture seems all but a horizontal rainbow, the meteorologist Courtney Obergfell explained

“The Horizontal Rainbow is also called fire rainbow and it’s an optical phenomenon that is essentially an ice halo formed by the refraction of the Sun in ice crystals in the atmosphere”.

Extremely rare phenomenon that, according to the St Barbara University Department, it is not a rainbow. The phenomenon occurs when the sun is higher than 58 degrees above the horizon, supporting a professional from the department, and the sun rays run through the mist and reflect on the glass slabs.

, non è un arcobaleno. Il fenomeno si verifica quando il sole è più alto di 58 gradi sopra l’orizzonte, sostiene un esperto del dipartimento, e i raggi del sole passano tra la foschia e si riflettono sulle lastre di ghiaccio.

The photographer shared the picture on her FB and Instagram pages, reaching an enormous number of people. Excited, she explained:

“I honestly had no idea these photos would make the news. I was just wanting to share a beautiful moment I got to witness. I’m super passionate about photography so I’m grateful that God has used my photos to touch people, not only throughout the nation but throughout the world. It’s boosted my photography business as well as make an impact on people so it feels pretty amazing”.
