You're tricking us, Katy, aren't you? This is fantastic, and proves how invaluable this site is: one person took a photo of this incredible scene, and yet we all get to view it. The whole series is wonderful! Congratulations on the blue border!

Good catch. Those "sunset rainbows" always fascinate me. I have seen a very few that are red like this one. Good job. Pretty soon now, Aurora's.

Wow Katy, you would have knocked my socks off with this one - if I had any on at the moment! Beautiful! Unbelievable that you could still have a rainbow approaching 11PM! Alaska is one amazing place. Congrats on the AC!

Thank you very much Elaine, Gil and Chrissy!

Chrissy I guess our rainbows are mostly late in the evening, like this or very nearly this late, mostly because of the long daylight hours in summer. I must say though, I don't think I've ever seen one this late, after sundown even.
