Horizontal over Eggardon

I have read of fire rainbows and circumhorizontal arks but can never be quite sure if I have seen a true one. We live in a fold of hills where the weather changes quickly and often bares no resemblance to the rest of the county, glorious one minute and black raging skies the next. Warm and sunny here, pelting it down and cold in Dorchester.  

We were greeted by this wonderful sight the other day - is it a horizontal rainbow? Anyway, whatever it is it's in the perfect spot. I can't imagine a better location for such a thing.

Dickie, I think they happen because light is being reflected up of something, water for instance. Beats CGG effects though. ATB, John
