Rainbows over NJ

We don't usually see rainbows in NJ at least I haven't seen one in over 12 years but I saw two rainbows in two weeks several weeks ago. We saw many rainbows when living in Hawaii but it's quite unusual for NJ. Maybe with global warming we're becoming tropical? The photo is bad because I shot it through a window.

It's actually a double rainbow. You can barely make out the second one on the right. Maybe doubleclicking the photo will bring up the uncompressed original and make it clearer.

I see rainbows in Michigan alot. Maybe we get more rainy/sunny combo days.

Aren't the double ones fantastic!?! I always feel priviledged when I see a double.

Yes, the doubles are just great and a fortunate sighting. I saw a newscast several weeks ago showing a video of a circular rainbow. Apparently all rainbows make a complete circle but we almost always only see a semicircle because of the earth's curvature. Some trick in the atmosphere made the circular rainbow apparent.
