OSTEEN -- Extreme weather photographer Jeremy Friebel may have captured one of the rarest sights in nature: What appears to be a double rainbow or rainbow on top of a rainbow.
It is one of the most beautiful sights captured on a digital camera by Friebel who routinely shoots extreme weather photos throughout Volusia County.
This image of the rainbow was captured at 8:07 p.m. Thursday in rural Osteen in unincorporated Volusia County after a thunderstorm as darkness was setting in.
It my look like a photoshop hoax, but Friebel, originally from Menasha, Wisc., and who lives in New Smyrna Beach, has prided himself on shooting weather scenes for quite some time and pitching them to Central Florida media outlets.
He grew up chasing tornadoes.

Did You Know?
The most famous reference to a rainbow is from the Holy Bible: After the great flood, Noah offered a sacrifice to God, who promised never again to destroy all life on Earth by a flood (Genesis 9:11 ) and gave the rainbow, called "my bow," as the sign of a covenant "between me and you and every living creature that [is] with you, for perpetual generations," (9:12-17 ) called the Noahic covenant.
In scientific terms, a rainbow is an optical and meteorological phenomenon that is caused by both reflection and refraction of light in water droplets resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky. It takes the form of a multicolored arc.
Rainbows can be observed whenever there are water drops in the air and sunlight shining from behind at a low altitude angle.
In a "primary rainbow," the arc shows red on the outer part and violet on the inner side.
