Wow: Double moonbow with northern lights spotted in Scotland
Double moonbow with northern lights were spotted in northern Scotland recently. Photos taken at Durness by Andy Walker have gone viral on social media. Moonbow or the lunar rainbow is a rare optical phenomenon which is caused when the light from the moon is refracted through water droplets in the air.
The spectacular phenomenon that is linked to activity on the surface of the Sun, was visible in the skies from parts of northern Scotland over the last few days. And on one day, people spotted a lunar rainbow called a ‘moonbow’ spread across the sky on a clear night.
