Red Rainbow on Jan 08, 2020

The rainbow was captured with a sky surveillance camera during sunrise.

Red rainbows appear during sunrise or sunset when shorter wavelengths of the sunlight are scattered away from particles in the atmosphere and the remaining light becomes red.

The picture and the video also show a faint secondary rainbow. Unfortunately not the full arc was visible from this viewpoint.
