3 HOUR WAIMEA DOUBLE MOONBOW IN A 34 SECOND TIME LAPSE

7:53 AM · Apr 7, 2021

https://youtu.be/Fa8o5AuWiJU A moon rainbow, or moonbow, appears on the south end of Waimea for an extraordinary 3 hours straight! Moonbow's are caused by the refraction of light in many water droplets. They form the same arch shape as solar rainbows however they are more faint. This particular Moonbow was a double moonbow and one of the most vibrant I've ever seen. Often times I"ll get rained on while capturing these magical moments. The conditions on this night were some of the wettest and windiest. That's why my gut told me to check one of my favorite peaceful places. I followed my gut's intuition and saw the biggest arch from a moon's rainbow than I ever have seen before. One of the coolest observations was watching the left arm of the rainbow move north as the moon rose overhead. The right arm stayed in the same spot. 34 second time lapse video. Taken from 10:58pm to 1:58am on the night and early morning of 3/31/21 and 4/1/21 from Waimea looking over Kohala Mountain on the Big Island of Hawaii.
