horizontal rainbow in paris

04/27/13 3 Comments


taken by betrand kulik. here’s nasa‘s explanation for this natural layer cake of color:

Why is this horizon so colorful? Because, opposite the Sun, it is raining. What is pictured above is actually just a common rainbow. It’s uncommon appearance is caused by the Sun being unusually high in the sky during the rainbow‘s creation. Since every rainbow‘s center must be exactly opposite the Sun, a high Sun reflecting off of a distant rain will produce a low rainbow where only the very top is visible — because the rest of the rainbow is below the horizon. Furthermore, no two observers can see exactly the same rainbow — every person finds themselves exactly between the Sun and rainbow’s center, and every observer sees the colorful circular band precisely 42 degrees from rainbow’s center.

a subway ride around the world



recently the new yorker focused its lens on the modern-day underground railroad.  by doing things like exploring the tunnels of milan & riding above venezulean slums, the photographers let you see some of the different experiences people across the globe have with the subway.  click on the pics for closer looks + background info via jessie wender‘s captions.  as you browse through, compare the images to your local public transport system.
