Moonbow and Rainbow over Patagonia

By: Stephane Guisard


Region: Americas

Site: Torres del Paine National Park - Chile

Date: February 2009

As seen on Astronomy Picture of the Day the unique time-lapse video displays a night pass at Torres del Paine, in Patagonia region of Chile. As noted by the photographer "Weather in Patagonia is not very often clear. When I set up my camera under the rain and a totally covered sky, my intention was to make a time lapse movie of a Moon rainbow, known as Moonbow. I filmed this successfully in the second half of the night but what I was not expecting, at the end of the movie, was to keep sleeping in my tent next to the camera while the sun was already rising, showing also a nice classical rainbow of sunlight!"
