Title: MY MIRACLE
Post by: hrendon on August 07, 2008, 11:52:13 am
    I'M NEW TO YOUR SITE. I'VE BEEN JUST STARTING TO RESEARCH TO SEE IF I CAN FIND ANOTHER PERSON OR PERSONS WHO MAY HAVE SHARED THE SAME AWESOME EXPERIENCE THAT I DID BACK AROUND 1987, GIVE OR TAKE A YEAR.I'M NOT HERE TO TRY TO CONVINCE ANYONE OF MY EXPERIENCE BUT ONLY TO SHARE WITH YOU AND THE SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY TO WHAT TOOK PLACE ON THAT SPECIAL AND BLESSED DAY ! DRUG AND ALCOHOL FREE MY STORY COMES TO YOU TRUE AND FROM MY HEART !!!
    YES, I'VE ACTUALLY BEEN AT THE END OF THE RAINBOW. I DON'T RECALL THE EXACT TIME OF DAY OR MONTH OF THE YEAR IT WAS. AN EX-GIRLFRIEND AND I DROVE UP TO KINGS CYN. NATL. PARK FOR A DAY TRIP. IT WAS SUNNY AND CLOUDY, IT HAD BEEN RAINING EARLIER BUT WAS NOW JUST SPRINKLING OFF AND ON. HAVING REACHED ROADS END, WE WERE HEADED BACK BUT WERE STILL IN THE KINGS RIVER CANYON. I PULLED OVER IN A SPOT ALONG THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AND WE GOT OFF THE CAR TO GO LOOK DOWN AT THE KINGS RIVER FROM A VISTA PT. HIGH UP ABOVE THE RIVER, IN THE RIVER CANYON! I REMEMBER THE WEATHER FELT KIND OF GLORIOUS BECAUSE IT WAS SPRINKLING WITH A SLIGHT WIND YET SUNNY !!  AS WE STOOD THERE ALONG THE EDGE WE NOTICED AND WERE LOOKING AT A RAINBOW AT A SHORT DISTANCE UP CANYON ABOVE THE RIVER.....THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN WE WERE ABLAZE WITH THE COLORS OF THE RAINBOW. EVERYWHERE I LOOKED FROM ALL DIRECTIONS (360 DEGREES) FROM THE GROUND UP, LOOKING WAY UP INTO THE SKY(HEAVENS). I COULD SEE COLORS.WE WERE ABLAZE IN COLORS !!! HUGE BANDS OF DIFFERENT COLORS OF THE RAINBOW PRISM. FROM LEFT TO RIGHT, FROM TOP TO BOTTOM, WE WERE ENGULFED IN GLORIOUS COLORS!!!!!!.......
     I CAN ONLY GUESS BECAUSE I WAS AWESTRUCK IN FASCINATION.... BUT I GUESSTIMATE IT MAY HAVE LASTED 10/15 TO 20 SECONDS !!!!GIVE OR TAKE !
     IT WAS A MIRACULOUS EXPERIENCE I'LL ALWAYS CHERISH AND NEVER FORGET !!!!!    CAN YOU PLEASE OFFER AN EXPLANATION ?
                                                            SINCERELY,    intlbkpkr@hotmail.com !

It is possible that you can see full circle (360 degree) of rainbow, when you standing at a high place while looking down and the sun is shining from the top.

But you should not be able to see the rainbow if you are facing the sun.

Please check out physics of Rainbow (http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php?topic=44.0)

    WE WERE FACING NORTH AND THE RAINBOW THAT WE WERE LOOKING AT BEFORE WAS EAST OF US, AT OUR ELEVATION AND HIGHER .  I,M NOT EXACTLY SURE BUT I BELIEVE THAT IT WAS MID TO LATE AFTERNOON.  I DO KNOW THAT WHEN EVER I LOOKED AROUND , IN EVERY DIRECTION , THERE WERE COLORS. AND ABOVE ME I COULD SEE LARGE WIDE BANDS OF COLORS. I HAVE NO EXPLANATION JUST A REAL MAGNIFICENT EXPERIENCE !   WISH I COULD MEET SOMEONE WHO'S HAD THIS HAPPEN TO THEM ?  OF COURSE ANY FEEDBACK IS WELCOMED.

Late Afternoon, so the sun is located on the west, and that is why you find rainbow on the east. But I do not think you can find rainbow in all direction. You can only find rainbow when you are not facing the sun.
