Two locations noted for their frequent moon bow observations are Kentucky's Cumberland Falls and Africa's Victoria Falls. There, the bows form from drops in the waterfall mist.
A MOON TOUR NOT TO MISS!
For three nights each month (one on either side of the actual full moon date) the Rainforest is open for a dramatic lunar rainbow – a rare natural phenomenon (also known as a moon bow or lunar bow or white rainbow) produced by the moon
The best time to see Victoria Falls, moonbow, is during a full Moon, at times of high water – the months of January to July
The spray can be seen for miles, and on a clear, bright, moonlit night (usually from March to July ) it forms something called a “moonbow” — reputedly one of the most staggeringly beautiful natural phenomena on the planet
Photographically the moonbow is best taken from the Zambian Side from March-JulyVictoria Falls has predictable, regular Moonbow's
To look on the delicate Lunar Rainbow, which the light of the moon shining through the spray creates, is a natural wonder without equal
When the Moon is Full, it rises at sunset and is visible all night long. At the end of the night, the Full Moon sets just as the Sun rises
This unique event, is visible the day before, the day of and the day after the full moon. For obvious reasons, Moonbow's are most easily viewed during full moon, just after astronomical twilight in the evening or before astronomical twilight in the morning (i.e. when the moon is low, not overhead) E&OE
