Rainbows over Niagara Falls

jassoh1Niagara Falls is a great location for rainbows (or solar bows) as sunshine reflects off the mist from the Falls and delights our many visitors with a beautiful show of colours.
Over one hundred years ago, Niagara Falls was also one of the best locations in the world to view night rainbows or lunar bows – a rainbow created by the light of the moon shining on the mist created by the Falls.
One of the best locations to view this phenomenon was Luna Island (apparently so named because of the lunar bow) on the American side of the Niagara river.
