Sometimes the rainbow isn't in the form of a halo, but just colors that just streak across the clouds. Fire rainbows, or more officially (and more boringly) known as "circumhorizonal arcs" are also caused by ice crystals in the thin, distant clouds being at just the correct angle to refract the sunlight into the colors of the prism.

If you have a photo of this effect from Sunday, E-mail me at scotts@komotv.com or Tweet me @ScottSKOMO and I might add it to this gallery.
