The AccuWeather Rainbow - 4 Rainbows
The AccuWeather Rainbow - 4 Rainbows
Description: Here you can see the other end of the primary and secondary rainbow in the sky and reflected on the building. Note here you can see the primary and secondary bow. On this mild but blustery and rainy January morning, AccuWeather Meteorologist Henry Margusity called me to tell me there was an awesome rainbow. I rushed from my desk at AccuWeather HQ and withstood 40 mph winds and driving rain to snap these pics. OK well there wasn`t much rain but it was my good camera!

Desk Top Picture We love your picture. Why the rainbow on the front of the building? -- South Fork Weather Team
Looking at the picture you can clearly see the double rainbow on the mirrowed windows of the AccuWeather building. That being said, this has to be the back side of the rainbow with the beam to the left of the building is the front part of the main beam. -- johnstownwildfire
TOO COOL. THANKS FOR THE PICTURE. I'LL PROBABLY NEVER SEE THIS AGAIN. ISNT IF FUNNY IT IS RIGHT ON ACCUWEATHER? OR MORE LIKE AWESOME! -- robeezgirl
Since two are reflections - actually of the other end of the rainbow, otherwise they would be backwards on the building - and two are the rainbow, this is not really that rare. It is possible to actually see 4 rainbows at the same time - that is extremely rare. See http://www.atoptics.co.uk/rainbows/bowim47.htm for an example. -- weathermatrix
Two words THE BEST! -- jodimiller

I see that most have figured that the reflection is the base of the rainbow opposite from the base hidden behind the left corner of the building. Somebody remind me why the secondary color array is NOT ROYGBIV but rather VIBGYOR? -- jmvalentineIII
Really nice and interesting picture it's rare to see a quad rainbow pic. and at of all places accuWeather, thanks so much for braving that weather to get such a great pic. -- craftyjem719
Jesse, for you to capture this serendipitous event is mind-boggling. It's akin to winning a lottery - on so many levels! -- flowerchild
How many other folks from within the building took pictures that day? Great Job. -- sunray
I love the rainbows. -- mandykemper
Actually not many, it was pretty early. Henry called me from his car to tell me about it but he didn't have his camera. -- weathermatrix
So, this is January in Pennsylvania? Why are there trees with green leaves and green grass on the ground? I'm just curious as I am from Nevada and there is no green here yet. Great photo otherwise and I rated it a 5.0! David FalconEyes Photography embassytech1 at yahoo dot com -- embassytech1
It's all evergreens - pines reflected in the window and periwinkle or some such ground covering in the foreground. -- weathermatrix
Beautiful picture. I was wondering why the sidewalks are not wet from the driving rain? -- Cadfael
Good question - this must have been before the rain started. -- weathermatrix
It was worth it, fantastic -- puzzlessue
Now hold on a second...how come there are 2 rainbows when u said there's 4? -- NASCATfan11
So what you are saying with this picture is that life is good at the end of the rainbow? OR You know where the storms are at AccuWeather? -- OldGrayOwl
