Wintry skies produce “rainbow smiles” or upside-down rainbows

SPACEWEATHER.COM has a beautiful picture of an upside-down rainbow. To quote: “The technical name for this phenomenon is circumzenithal arc or "CZA" for short–and it’s no rainbow. CZAs are formed by sunlight shining through plate-shaped ice crystals in high clouds.”

These ice rainbows are more common in fall/early winter when the sun is low — so keep an eye peeled for them. The photo was taken recently in Alabama. Consider it a smile in the sky just to brighten your day.

A gift to my lovely readers —

As a special gift to my readers I thought you might enjoy some background music. A terrific writer and geek found these archived radio recordings of the Beatles for a Swedish radio show way back when. He cleaned them up a bit and edited them, and here they are. Five songs in cool condition. So turn up the volume alright already.
