This deep-subhorizon part of a rainbow was photographed by Günther Können on 2 Oct 2005 on a flight from Amsterdam to Madrid. Although cloudbows are frequently seen from an airliner, rainbow sightings are relatively rare. To my (Günther's) experience, the best chances are when the altitude of the plane is not too high. It was the second time that I saw such a distinct one, the first time being 23 yr ago.
