What is Wrong with this Picture?


Something does not fit in this picture.  Observe, analyze, and consider.  Then look at the answer below. 


Wait for it . . .

Answer:  Rainbows are never seen around sunsets.  (Or sunrises, or noontime suns, etc.)  Rainbows are formed by refraction, so they are seen opposite the sun, often with the sun at your back.

And just to let you know we are not destroying McKayla’s life by showing her picture all over the place, she says in this video she thinks it’s funny how her image was plastered all over the internet.
