'Moonbow' captured over Victoria Falls

Arching over the world famous Victoria Falls this mesmeric rainbow shines in the moonlight creating a nocturnal light show. Known as a 'Moonbow', the hypnotic phenomenon was captured under the gaze of a full moon over 'The Devils Cataract' section of the falls.

‘Victoria Falls is also known as "the smoke that thunders" because it creates such a huge spray of water - up to a mile high. This is obviously perfect conditions for rainbows - both day and night rainbows.The 330-foot-high and nearly one-mile-wide Victoria Falls is the world’s largest curtain of falling water. An astonishing 137million gallons of water passes over the Falls per minute.
