White rainbows spotted across the Netherlands over the weekend

Several fog bows - otherwise known as white rainbows - were spotted across the Netherlands over the weekend. Did you manage to see one?

Fog bows on the Wadden Islands and in Friesland

On the whole, the weekend was a sunny one, but the Dutch Weather Institute also issued a code yellow warning for dense mist. These weather conditions were ideal for the forming of fog bows!

Fog bows are similar phenomena to rainbows, only these appear in the fog instead of in the rain. They are formed when sunlight hits water droplets in the air, but because the water droplets that cause fog are exceedingly small, there’s no distinct arc of colours. 

Many were spotted across the Wadden Islands and in the north of the country, but if you weren’t lucky enough to see one then don’t worry! Take a look at some impressive photos of the Dutch white rainbows from over the weekend.
