Is there such a thing as a snowbow?
My spouse and I saw this in the sky last Thursday about 4:50 pm in Johnson City, New York. We were having a mixed rain/snow shower and we suddenly saw this rainbow - or snowbow? in the eastern sky, while driving.
I took a couple of pictures through the windshield of our car.
Looking online, I find that there may (or may) not be such a thing as a snowbow.
This says no.
This says yes, but what they describe isn't what I saw.
What I think I saw, though, was a true rainbow, produced by the rain component of the shower.
Still, it's the first time I've ever seen a rainbow associated with snow.
To my science minded readers - what do you think?
