Double rainbows all the way ... again

It’s been a little over a year since Paul Vasquez’s over-the-top video reaction to a double rainbow at Yosemite National Park went viral.


The three-minute video of Vasquez, aka Hungry Bear, awing and oohing over what he describes as a “full on” and “so intense” double rainbow took the Internet by storm and inspired a handful of catchy songs, parodies and interesting conversations. It even inspired iReporters to send in photos and videos of their double rainbows experiences.


Even though its been more than a year since it became an online sensation, iReporters are still sending in their photos and videos of double rainbow moments, and just yesterday we got iReports from two iReporters in New York.


Kim Lofgren from Brooklyn captured this photo of a vibrant double rainbow over Coney Island.



“Seeing how bright the sun was after a rainstorm, I thought there might be a rainbow out there,” Lofgren said. “When I went out on my terrace to check, sure enough, there was one! And it was a double rainbow! The size and brightness took my breath away!”


Nicholas Kistner was in his room in Manhattan waiting out the storm yesterday afternoon when he caught glimpse of this double rainbow.



“I thought it looked really cool, and I had to get it on camera,” Kistner said.


CNN even captured the rainbow in New York yesterday shining brightly over Central Park.



Double rainbow moments are always a nice surprise here at the iReport desk, so if you look up after a rain shower and notice Roy G Biv or a leprechaun and a pot of gold, snap a photo or film a short video and send it to iReport!
