The world's rainbow capital is Honolulu in Hawaii. The mountains on the windward side of the islands cause the prevailing warm, moist trade winds to rise, creating clouds and almost daily rain, and forming lots of rainbows.

Oh the memories! Jae and I lived on Oahu for a year, 1990, and one of our fondest memories is how on almost any given day when you drive up the Pali Highway from Honolulu to go to the windward side, to your right near the top is a neighborhood about three blocks deep, with mountains ringing it, sitting lower than the highway, and you can almost always see a complete rainbow, end to end, right there in that three block deep neighborhood. Simply awesome to see and it's there free to look at almost every day.

Mother Nature is amazing! All of the photos were great but I especially liked the view of the Northern Lights from space. That was too cool.
