What is a Moon-Bow ?



Moon-bows are incredibly rare and they are appear only a few places in the world.

Under a full moon on clear nights, an elusive lunar rainbow (moonbow) is sometimes formed by the mist emanating from the falls. Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, Africa is the another place where we can see the Moonbow.



Cumberland Falls is the only place in North America where we can see a moonbow.  But I missed to see it bcoz my trip was not planned on Full moon day , and all my pictures on this page were taken in the daytime .
