This Triple Rainbow Makes Everything All Better

This serves as your midweek cheer-up PSA: somewhere in the world last week, a beautiful triple rainbow made an appearance. If you squint hard you can even see a fourth rainbow in there. No matter what’s kicking your ass this week, this makes your day at least a little bit better, right? [Reddit] [Image via Imgur]

Travel Porn: The 7 Best Places To See An Epic Rainbow

As much as I can appreciate a grand cathedral or a museum filled with classic paintings, sometimes there’s nothing better than a big, beautiful rainbow stretching across the sky.

Quadruple Rainbow For The Win

Quadruple Rainbow
OMG Double Rainbow
Double rainbow
It's a double rainbow! Read More »

We all know about double rainbows thanks to Paul “Bear” Vasquez’s You Tube video. Triple rainbows are far more rare but have been documented. The motherload of all rainbows is the elusive quadruple rainbow, which had yet to be seen until this week. Behold the image of the first quadruple, or quaternary rainbow, ever photographed in the countryside of northern Germany. It may not look like much — it’s basically impossible to capture all four rainbows in the same picture, hence you can only “see” two –  but it takes a whole lot of scientific serendipity to make a four-bow happen. It requires a quadruple bounce of light on raindrops for the multicolored beams to appear in the sunward part of the sky respectively 40 and 45 degrees from the sun.  In lay terms, this bitch is worth four pots of gold for the “rainbow chaser” who caught her. I look forward to the auto-tuned meme by the Gregory Brothers. [MSNBC]

Oh My God, A Double Rainbow


These two corresponding videos are what make the internet so incredibly awesome. The first is a clip is of a double rainbow spotted earlier this year by a hiker in Yosemite. The hiker, probably on shrooms, is so blown away by the double rainbow he has what amounts to some sort of non-sexual orgasm over the whole thing, yelling over and over again “Oh my God!” and “What does it MEAN?!” After the jump, check out the incredible mashup Double Rainbow Song, sure to be a hit at a dance club near you.

Quick Pic: Double Rainbow Just In Time For Gay Pride Weekend

How do you pay tribute to the first gay community uprising in America? Well, it seems like Roy G. Biv has got it covered. Saturday, in New York City, an amazing double rainbow stretched across the sky. It seems a fitting homage to a city not only about to celebrate another spectacular Gay Pride Parade, but also the 40th Anniversary of The Stonewall Riots, an incredibly brave civil rights protest by the LGBT community.
