Moonbow

Also known as lunar rainbows, moonbows are the work of moonlight rather than sunlight. Only visible at night, a moonbow is quite rare and a lot fainter and smaller than its day-time alternative. Although it has been caught on camera at several locations around the world, particularly near waterfalls in Yosemite National Park, Plitvice Lakes in Croatia and Victoria Falls in Africa, the perfect conditions to see a moonbow are more important than the location: It has to be during a full moon around two to three hours after sunset or before sunrise.
