DescriptionA strong display of airglow covering part of the sky with the Magellan Clouds visible. I was surprised to find such a strong display of airglow in a rural sky only 100km away from a very big city. Airglow patterns can occurr anywhere in the world and sometimes you get lucky.

DescriptionDouble rainbow is quite an interesting optical phenomenon in which the sunlight reflects twice inside the raindrops and produces a secondary rainbow outside the primary one. Due to the secondary reflection of light, the colors in the secondary rainbow appear inverted compared to primary rainbow.
