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...

Don't limit the friends you haven't met with arguments you'll never have.

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.
