moonbow- Word of the Day

moonbow – noun


1.   a rainbow caused by the refraction and reflection of light from the moon.

Moonbows are most often and easiest seen over falls such as Yosemite Falls in Yosemite National park and Cumberland Falls in Kentucky to name a couple of places.

The naked eyes see them as a white arc whereas long exposure photography captures the color in it beautifully.

Therefore, if you want to capture a moonbow, take a road trip to a place with waterfalls on a clear night and hope for the best.

Happy hunting!
