NOT a rainbow!

Dam Lake, WI

Spectacular! This streak of color is actually a “circumhorizontal arc”, a pretty rare atmospheric event. I took the photo in Sugar Camp, WI at 1pm in the afternoon. It lasted for about 2 hours, and continually changed shape and color. You can view more photos I took of it here on the WGN Weather Blog!
