Mother Nature put on a spectacular show over the Washington/Idaho border last weekend to mark the start of Gay Pride month, in sharp contrast to events staged by the Republicans and the retail bigots.
The prismatic phenomenon, which covers hundreds of square miles, is the rarest form of ice halo: “To create a rainbow of fire, clouds must be at least 20,000ft high and the ice crystals within them align horizontally instead of their usual vertical position. The sun also needs to be at least 58 degrees above the horizon. Then, the magic can begin.”
I wonder what God told Pat Robertson about this.
NOTE: This reminds me of a spectacular “ice halo” event in the form of a “sun pillar” I photographed in Provincetown a few years ago.
