Rare full circle rainbow filmed over Russia

Posted on Friday, 28 July, 2017 | Comment icon 10 comments

You don't see a rainbow like this every day. Image Credit: YouTube / Lakhta Center Skyscraper
A crane operator working on a construction site has recorded footage of a 360-degree rainbow.
Filmed at the site of the Lakhta Center skyscraper in St. Petersburg, the video shows the rainbow stretching all the way around to form a complete circle of vibrant color high above the city.

The recording, which was uploaded on to Youtube this week, has since gone viral.

The building itself, which is due for completion in 2018, is set to be a whopping 1,516ft tall.

not only is it a rainbow circle but a double rainbow circle.

But since it's a circle, no pot of gold at the end.

Cool rainbow. Man, no way in hell I'd have a crane job like that.

Where would you even start looking for the pot of gold?

I wonder if, technically, this could be measured as a perfect circle. I suppose so. Nature probably makes perfect circles.

All Rainbows are circles, but you never get to see that unless you are flying.... or in a ridiculously tall freaking tower!
