Quadruple Rainbow: ‘Extremely Rare’ Rainbow Spotted In Long Island [Photo]

A quadruple rainbow was spotted in Long Island, New York, and a photo of it has gone viral. According to CNN, Amanda Curtis, a CEO of a fashion company in New York, was waiting to hop on a train when she saw not one, not two, but four rainbows in the sky. She took a moment to enjoy the sight before snapping a photo and posting it online for others to enjoy.

“I looked a little bit closer and saw that there were actually four. I had a small moment of awe,” she said. She then posted the photo on Twitter where it was been shared hundreds of times. Major news outlets all over the world have been reporting on this beautiful pic.

“It’s been surreal I feel like we’re breaking the Internet but in a really great way,” Curtis added.

The quadruple rainbow is extremely rare, but it has been seen a couple of times in the past. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, a photographer in Germany caught a glimpse of four rainbows back in 2011. At that time, there had only been five ever quadruple rainbows seen over the past 250 years. Reports indicated that the sighting was the first of its kind ever caught by a camera. Since then, no similar sightings have been reported… until now. Sure, there have been quite a few double rainbows, but nothing quite like what Ms. Curtis spotted.

According to the Canada Journal, Curtis spotted the rainbows around 6:30 a.m.

“I feel so lucky! I’m a startup founder and my biggest challenge is getting word out about my business Nineteenth Amendment and the quadruple rainbow is helping me do that. It’s better than winning the lottery – it’s one of the best things that could have happened to me,” Curtis said.

On Wednesday, she tweeted a message to The Ellen Show, in hopes of getting her photo (and maybe her brand) more recognition.
