There was a rare sighting of a weather phenomenon in New York State of a massive full-circle rainbow.

In New York State there was a helicopter that was flying above the clouds when they got a glimpse of a rainbow that was an entire circle. Obviously, from the ground it is not easy to see a full circle rainbow, but from the sky it is possible.

Did you know that there is actually a name for a rainbow that makes a complete circle?

It is actually called a 'GLORY'.

"A glory is an optical phenomenon which is caused by sunlight or moonlight nteracting with the tiny water droplets.The glory consists of one or more concentric, successively dimmer rings, each of which is red on the outside and bluish towards the centre"

The weather in New York State is finally taking a turn. In some regions there was a threat for some snow this week, but luckily that is over with. In the Western New York region, temperatures are set to reach the 70s by the weekend. If you are looking to plant anything in your garden, it still may be too early though. Some experts say that the rule of thumb should be that you DO NOT PLANT ANYTHING until Memorial Day weekend in New York State. By doing this, you eliminate any of the threat of any frost that may be on the ground in the mornings causing harm to your flowers or garden.
