    THIS IS A FIRE RAINBOW (below) - THE RAREST OF ALL NATURALLY OCCURRING ATMOSPHERIC PHENOMENA.

    THE PICTURE WAS CAPTURED THIS WEEK ON THE IDAHO / WASHINGTON BORDER. THE EVENT LASTED ABOUT 1 HOUR.

    CLOUDS HAVE TO BE CIRRUS, AT LEAST 20K FEET IN THE AIR, WITH JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF ICECRYSTALS AND THE SUN HAS TO HIT THE CLOUDS AT PRECISELY 58 DEGREES.

    Them are beautiful Jo. I use to see them all the time in the winters in Alaska. They were always different and colorful, and it was usually cold as as a well digger's *** in a tundra hole, at the time. :)

    Awesome pictures. Thanks for posting them.

    That is just beautiful, but -40 is a little cold for me, so pictures are as close as I will get to seeing The Northern Lights I guess.

    Still awesome.

    Beautiful pics- the lights are painfully hard to photograph (you are trying to take a picture of light itself)

    I was based out of Fairbanks for 2 years- great viewing of the aurora- but at minus 60, film in camera could freeze, and break when you tried to wind film. Hell, one day I got out of car and slammed door, and weatherstripping shattered and fell to the ground.

    Wow I wish there was something cool to look at like that around where I live. Coldest I ever been was in -17 in North Bay, Ontario. All the Canadians were making fun of me because I was all bundled up with 3 layers of clothing and 2 scarves on my face. A cold front in Houston is about 45 degrees.
