Rare Quintuple Rainbow: Proof of the Existence of Unicorns?


Mod: For some reason unicorns are popular in Sierra Madre. I have no idea why this is, but it wasn't all that long ago that the topic used to come up in the comments a lot. All that said, there has been no real proof of their existence until now. Though some killjoys will say this is nothing more than a prism effect caused by the combination of water vapor and sunlight, the sighting of this rare quintuple rainbow is the reason some unicorn believers have found hope. 

Rare Quintuple Rainbow Captured by Photographer in New Jersey (Live Science link): While shooting a sunset in New Jersey recently, photographer John Entwistle got another gorgeous sight: a sky painted with what looked like a set of five rainbows.

"I could be wrong but that sure looks like a quintuple rainbow at sunset tonight over the Jersey Shore, NJ," Entwistle wrote on Instagram on Sept. 18.

Supernumerary rainbows like this one consist of a primary rainbow — the brightest and most vivid of the bunch — as well as at least two other, less brilliant, rainbows. In the case of the rainbow captured by Entwistle, five supernumerary rainbows were visible.

"In general, supernumeraries are quite common. There are many pictures of 2 or 3 supernumeraries," Gunther Können, a retired climate scientist with the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute, told Live Science in an email. "But the appearance in nature of 5 supernumeraries is exceptional."

  4. I have been fortunate enough to view the elusive rainbows from time to time during my travels throughout this country.
    I also subscribe to FOX NEWS where one of the commentators swears that unicorns are real.

  7. Could this be a sign from GOD to let the people of America know that the GOP is doomed and 'trumpy' is on his way out via a gate keeper?
