Double rainbow yesterday...

Never seen one before. A Google search seems to indicate they are quite common.

Yup!... seen a few... but always been driving the car on a motorway, or dual carriageway, with nowhere to stop to take pics ! ! ! ...

 

Plenty of them, and some quite spectacular, on Google Images...

I see double rainbows a lot round here, the rain tends to come in from the southwest and when the sun is still in the south east it makes the double rainbows happen...

Often see a triple down here. The two inners are usually both very bright with the third just the outer uprights without the top arch.
