Sunny Day Rainbows Spotted across Area

There was no rain on Wednesday, but people throughout northeastern and central Pennsylvania reported seeing rainbows in the sky.

Some of them were circling the sun, while others were upside down rainbows between the sun and the horizon.

We got the photos through Facebook and Twitter from viewers in many different counties.

Rainbows were reported as far west as Pittsburgh and up into New York State.

The rainbows were formed by sunlight refracting off ice crystals in cirrus clouds.
