The following is a photograph of a fire rainbow - the rarest of all naturally occurring atmospheric phenomena. The picture was captured on the Idaho / Washington border. The event lasted about 1 hour.

Clouds have to be cirrus, at least 20k feet in the air, with just the right amount of ice crystals and the sun has to hit the clouds at precisely 58 degrees.

Wow!

Great pic . . . very surreal. I'd love to catch one of those someplace (with my camera handy, of course).
