Essential Moonbow Viewing Guide

Spectacular rainbows are an Instagram feed a dozen, but what about moonbows? These rainbows of the night, also known as “lunar rainbows” or “space rainbows,” are a rare weather phenomenon you can only catch in a few of our world’s locales.

The moonbows are created by moonlight refracting through moisture in the air, which is why they’re easiest to see on full moon nights over waterfalls that fill the air around them with water droplets. This particular occurrence, because there can never be enough names for something so spectacular, is a “lunar spraybow.” 

The buoyant naturalist John Muir wrote of the one at Yosemite Falls:

"Lunar rainbows or spray-bows abound in the glorious affluence of dashing, rejoicing, hurrahing, enthusiastic spring floods, their colors are distinct as those of the sun and regularly and obviously banded, though less vivid. Fine specimens may be found any night at the foot of the Upper Yosemite Fall, glowing gloriously amid the gloomy shadows and thundering waters, whenever there is plenty of moonlight and spray."

Many times the moonbows appear white as it’s hard for our human eyes to discern their colors at night, but through a timelapse photograph the whole spectrum comes through. When scouting the world’s waterfalls and rainy terrains, it’s important not to get tricked by the “false moonbows.” These are rainbow rings around the moon, which, as cool as that is, are a different kind of light refraction through a cloud.

Marking the 450th Anniversary of William Shakespeare’s Birth

For more photos from the sites of William’s Shakespeare life, explore the Shakespeare’s Birthplace, Globe Theater and Shakespeare’s Grave location pages.

Every year at the end of April, a celebration of the life and works of the great playwright William Shakespeare takes place in the market town of Stratford-upon-Avon, England. Shakespeare was born there in 1564 and cultural celebrations in Stratford’s streets, with entertainers, street performers and traditional Morris dancers, go back hundreds of years.

From his plays to his sonnets, Shakespeare’s extensive works have produced a legacy of characters, ideas, histories and, of course, words—it is thought he contributed more than 2,000 to the English language. His plays are a staple on many school curriculums, and continue to be reinterpreted on stage, rewritten in fiction and retold on screen.

The man himself is still very much a mystery and few details exist about his private life. Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway with whom he bore three children, before relocating to London to pursue his acting and writing career. He died at the age of 52 on April 23, 1616—a date which fell very near to his birthday in the same month (the exact date is unknown).

This year marks the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth and, on Saturday, a special procession will take place in Stratford, ending with celebrants laying flowers on Shakespeare’s grave in the Holy Trinity Church. The world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Company will also host a full program of shows.
