Photo by Scott Haefner: Double Moonbow

A moonbow (also called a lunar rainbow or white rainbow) forms at the base of Lower Yosemite Falls. This phenomenon, which lasted only ~45-minutes, is a fairly rare sight in the park. It requires a full moon at a particular angle, and abundant spray from the ephemeral, snowmelt-fed falls.
