Rainbow cloud over Mount Rainier while backpacking to Carbon Glacier and Dick Creek

Rainbow Cloud over Mt. Rainier

While backpacking with Boy Scout Troop 954 we did a day hike to Carbon Glacier overlook and Dick Creek Campground at the base of Mt. Rainier. During lunch a cloud appeared over the mountain and the sun hit it just right to create this rainbow cloud. Overall the hike was absolutely beautiful and the timing could not have been any better.

Firstly, not everything is a chemtrail, and I would have to say this is a natural phenom. Second, To all the people who believe everything scientists say, then I invite you to watch a movie called what in the world are they spraying.

Nice light refraction photo, Troop 954! And kids, stay in school... or you too will "see planes spraying us with chemicals every day".. you know, maybe there IS something in their water!

Sounds like the "weed" is making a few people paranoid. Should have gone to science class in H. S. instead of skipping and you would know what causes rainbows.

I suggest the chembow proposers back up their interpretations with a little science. The various elements suggested here to be causing the spectra don't produce those colors. Seattle is upwind anyway, so the water analysis is irrelevant.

Toxic Chembow.

Um, it's beautiful?

Thats a chembow. Its not normal. Its manmade.

CJ says ... on Monday, Jul 5 at 8:30 AM

Wow, a lot of basement dwellers on this strain. It looks like a typical fire rainbow to me, one of the rarest atmospheric phenomenons around. Enjoy it, you psychos.

I dare anyone to test a jar of Seattle rainwater for Aluminum, Arsenic Barium, Cadnium and Lead. I dare you. Thats a chembow.

Aluminum, Barium , Cadnium and lead right into our drinking water. The government even admits it. Its a chembow. Ice crystals, uh, ya right. Depopulauon is more like it.

Only a complete fool would fall for the ice crystal joke. Thats a chembow. I have seen the planes spraying us hundreds of times. Chemdogs , chembows, all caused by barium and aluminum dust in the upper atmosphere.

Rainbow effect comes from the ice crystals at very high altitude typically, not this low right over Rainier. I don't understand how you can call Chemical Trails a conspiracy theory when anybody can look-up and see them being layed by military.

Jeff , conspiracy theory, means your a liar. Its a chembow.

Danny says ... on Thursday, Jul 1 at 9:16 AM

The color come from barium. Thats a chembow. Don't fall for the ice crystal lie. Its caused by chemtrails.

Jeff says ... on Wednesday, Jun 30 at 2:23 AM

Chem Clouds are a conspiracy theory, Ken. The rainbow cloud is caused by the suns rays refracting through ice crystals in the cloud itself. It's a completely natural event.

Ken says ... on Tuesday, Jun 29 at 4:27 PM

Thats a chemcloud caused by al the chemtrails. Aluminum and Barium. Its not natural.

I see the likeness of a RAINBOW DRAGON!

Mikey says ... on Monday, Jun 28 at 2:30 AM

It looks like a rainbow dragon cloud!

That is a wonderful picture of the cloud over Mt. Rainer. Thank you for sharing it with us all.
