Two Rainbows in the Singapore Sky (It Happened Before!)

I heard on radio this morning about amazing sight of two rainbows appearing in the sky at the same time. Some officials from Science Center explained that the phenomenon was due sun rays passing through two blocks of moist air in the atmosphere, thus creating mirroring effect. Actually, it happened before in Singapore and I managed to take photos of it!

As stated in Wiki, it is quite rare for a secondary rainbow to occur. When it does, the second rainbow is usually fainter, which usually locate outside the primary one. Because it is a reflection of the primary one, the colours are usually in opposite order of the primary rainbow i.e. violet on the outside and red on the inside!

Ps: There are quite a few photos of it !
