Odd rainbow-like effect

    Curious if anyone has seen something like this before, first time I've ever seen anything like it

    Not the greatest pic but basically a rainbow-like colouring stretching along under the clouds - looks far more impressive and weird in person.

    A low bow! :)

    Just to do with the angle/elevation of the sun.

    The lower the angle/elevation of the sun, the higher the rainbow will appear...and vice versa.

    Pity I didn't have a better camera it looked very odd - an almost alien glow that stretched a fair bit, looked cool anyway!

    Saw a lowbow last week too.

    No pics unfortunately.

    A fogbow beats all. Saw one of them a few months ago while in graveyard. As well as everyone else my phone was dead.
