Did you see the vertical rainbow? It was only Red, Orange, Yellow and green? I saw it around 5:25 driving BB to gym class.

No I didn't I was raking so the trees were blocking. However, your description suggests that what you saw might have been a type of "sun dog" which are created by ice crystals in the atmosphere.

This link to Wiki talks about them, and if you scroll down a bit there is one photo that seems like your phenomenon.

This is not meant to degrade your sighting as there are as many "sun dog" chasers as there are rainbow chasers and scientists are still trying to understand the conditions that create them.

It just occurred to me that you thought the photo was from yesterday. I actually took it over a week ago, the trees today don't have that many leaves. Thank goodness.

Now, a sunset like that makes a person feel like she's on vacation. Beautiful.

Beautiful, Exceptionally Beautiful! I can totally relate to watching a sunset like this! I think next year that will be my goal, to watch more sunsets and really see them for all they are!
