A beautiful, hardbound book all about rainbows, halos, mirages, colors in the sky, water reflections, shadows, aurorae, colors of the sun, moon and stars, and all aspects of visual (naked eye) phenomena in Nature with tips on how to see and photograph them. Hundreds of glorious sights are described, explained and shown, most in color. Also available as a CD containing each chapter as a PDF file.

What is a rainbow? Why are there always two of them? Can mirages be photographed? Why do stars twinkle? How many ice crystal haloes are there? Is it really darkest just before dawn? Why is the sky blue? Why is the setting sun red and flattened? What color is water and why does it appear so many different colors? Why does the full moon look so big on the horizon? What's the best way to see an aurora borealis? What is the green flash? Why are icebergs blue? Why can clouds produce such strong colors? What is a glory? Why is the dark side of the moon sometimes visible? What are those light beams that seem to radiate from the setting sun?
