Meteorologists said that the quadruple rainbow in her very rare photo, was actually a double-double rainbow.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) research meteorologist Paul Neiman told the Washington Post:

“A large glassy-smooth water surface is required behind the observer. This smooth water surface reflects the sun, such that a second solar light source is generated. This reflected sun creates a second primary and secondary rainbow on the opposite side of the sky from the sun.”
