WATCH: Rare 'fire rainbow' seen above Jersey
A RARE weather phenomenon has been seen in the skies above Jersey today.
Following a thoroughly wet morning, when the sun finally came out it produced a so-called 'fire rainbow'.
It is created when ice crystals line up in a particular way inside high-level cloud.
In a tweet, Jersey Met said: 'It's called rainbow fire. They happen in cirrus cloud, which is made of tiny ice crystals. The precise shape and alignment of the crystals determine whether or not we see it.'
