May 6, 2011: Rainbow at Duke

I was sitting in my room, working on a proposal when suddenly it started raining. About 30 min later, the rain slowed and sun appeared in the almost-setting configuration - perfect conditions for an example of atmospheric optics. So I took my camera and outside found the rainbow that should be there
