A marvel of the sky

UNUSUAL SIGHT: Catherine Picioane, from Melbourne, took this photo while in Ballina on New Year’s Day.
UNUSUAL SIGHT: Catherine Picioane, from Melbourne, took this photo while in Ballina on New Year’s Day.

CATHERINE Picioane was just sitting down for lunch with her brother Brendan from Shaws Bay when she saw an unusual sight in the sky. It was a rainbow-like image, but it was straight and the colours were blurred.

The Melbourne woman, who is in Ballina on holidays, photographed what she saw and sent it to the Advocate.

A similar photo taken that day was posted on the North Coast Stormchasers' website, and their explanation was: "It just so happens that the sun was on the right angle at the right time and all of the ice crystals let off a rainbow-like colour."
