Bright Horizon

Bright Horizon
Photograph by Norbert Rosing

In late June, with the clock ticking toward midnight, a fogbow arcs above the horizon as sunlight sets the mist aglow. Also called cloudbows and white rainbows, fogbows owe their whitish hue to small water droplets, which reflect and refract sunlight into arcs of spectrum colors so broad that they overlap to produce a nearly white bow.
