Photos: Prismic Display Above the North Shore

Here are photos of opposing rainbows in the sky above Salem about 4 pm on Saturday. We like the description from Brenda G in the comments below, a prismic display of quadruple rainbows.

We've never seen rainbows stacked in opposite directions.

It's probably the last we will see of clear skies for days.

Also in the mix is a shot from George Allen above Fisherman's Beach at night. The streak of light is likely from a small plane, the trail of light a product of the extended photo exposure.
