A while ago, I wrote an entry in my personal journal about seeing a rainbow 
without rain. I came across this entry the other day and thought about what 
could have cause such an occurence. In the entry I wrote "In other news, today 
I was tripping on what I saw in the sky. As the sun was along its way to 
setting in its bed, the Pacific Ocean, I saw a rainbow in the clouds. But 
there was no rain. It stayed there until the sun set."
