Unveiling Newton’s Bow: A Spectacular Twist in Rainbow Lore

reported by Ffwl Ebrill

In a recent meteorological spectacle that has set the scientific community abuzz, a few lucky photographers caught site of a very rare phenomenon that has long eluded human observation: the enigmatic “Newton’s Bow.” Unlike its traditional counterpart, Newton’s Bow reveals itself with an unexpected twist, displaying a mesmerizing palette of blue, pink, and white hues against the canvas of the sky. But what causes this beguiling spectacle?

Professor Aurora Prism, a leading expert in atmospheric optics at the Institute of Luminous Phenomena, Oxford sheds some light on this captivating occurrence. “Newton’s Bow is a celestial anomaly that occurs under specific atmospheric conditions,” she explains. “It’s essentially a rainbow’s quirky cousin, appearing only when nature decides to play its most whimsical hand.”

Eyewitness accounts from bewildered onlookers further corroborate the rarity of this phenomenon. “I was on my Trawler on the tranquil sea, just out of Brighton Maria, everything was utterly still and the rain had stopped when suddenly, the sky erupted into a burst of colours unlike anything I’ve ever seen,” recounts Captain McEasy. “It was as if the heavens themselves were putting on a show just for us.”

But what precisely triggers this intersectional display of colours? According to Dr. Iris Refraction, a seasoned meteorologist and co-author of a groundbreaking study into rare atmospheric phenomena, the secret lies in the perfect alignment of celestial and meteorological factors. “Newton’s Bow is a confluence of a flat calm sea, a low sun, strato luminous clouds and very fine rain,” she elucidates. “Under these serendipitous circumstances, light undergoes intricate refractions and reflections, bouncing back onto itself, in effect cancelling out certain colours and resulting in the ethereal beauty that we’ve come to associate with this rare phenomenon.”

Rev Snell of the universal Church of Inclusion, an LGBTQ+ church based in Brighton said ‘how wonderful that this was seen across our skies the day after Trans Day of Visibility yesterday, we all know the rainbow is the Goddesses’ promise to us all, a reminder of the Goddesses commitment to the earth and this special rainbow in the colours of the Trans Flag is a blessing to our Trans and nonbinary communities from the highest spiritual place, it says to our TNBI communities ‘you are loved’.

Indeed, historical records indicate that sightings of Newton’s Bow are as elusive as they are breathtaking. The last documented occurrence, coincidentally on the same date -1st April, see the photo’s here – which was captured on film dates to the late 70’s when people danced to ABBA and flares were the height of fashion. Since then, the phenomenon has remained shrouded in mystery, leaving scientists and sky gazers alike yearning for another glimpse of its splendour.

As the scientific community continues to unravel the mysteries of the natural world, and ubiquity of high-quality cameras continue to provide eyewitness evidence discoveries like Newton’s Bow serve as a poignant reminder of the boundless wonders that await us just beyond the horizon. So, the next time you find yourself gazing at the sky on a tranquil afternoon, keep your eyes peeled for that elusive burst of blue, pink, and white—a reminder that even in the realm of science, magic still thrives.

In the words of Sir Isaac Newton himself, “Nature is pleased with simplicity. And nature is no stranger to the occasional touch of TransJoy.”
