Blog Challenge "I"

Onward to part 9 of the A to Z blog challenge:

I is for: Iceblink


Iceblink is a noun for a yellowish glare on the underside of a cloud, signifying ice beyond the visible horizon.  I know that seems pretty obscure, but bear with me.  What I really want you to take from this is the occurrence of a very rare phenomenon: an iceblink rainbow.

An iceblink rainbow is basically a white-ish colored rainbow, caused in part by iceblink.  Pretty cool, huh, a white rainbow?  I think it is.  Here is one of the few pictures I could find of one:


Happy Monday!

I've heard of the green dot on a horizon and sunset before, but I've never heard of an Iceblink. That's actually pretty cool, and I'm sure helpful to sailors who are looking for a course of navigation.

I had no idea that the A to Z challenge could be so much fun! I like the idea of an ice blink. In fact, living as far north as we do, I think I've seen one of those, but never knew what to call it. Oh wait a minute. Maybe that was just a speck in my eye!
