Circumhorizontal Arc/環水平アーク

Japanese Food
Yesterday, past ten o’clock in the morning, my daughter said that there was a straight rainbow in the sky. We went outside and took some photo, together with one video.

An evening TV news program reported on this rainbow, saying that this type of rainbow is called a “sai-un” (cloud iridescence).

But, today, I learned the right word for this type of rainbow from today’s newspaper: circumhorizontal arc.
でも、今日、今日の新聞でこのような虹の正しい名前が分かりました: 環水平アーク
