Quadruple Rainbow, Twitter


Does this mean we should be looking for four pots of gold?!

When Glencove, New York resident Amanda Curtis looked outside after another round of April showers, she was amazed at what she saw.

No, it wasn't a bird. And it wasn't a plane. It was a quadruple rainbow!

"Quadruple #Rainbow at #GlenCove NY @LIRR station," she tweeted just before 7 a.m. local time. "Today will be 4 pots of #gold #Lucky #chasetherainbow #aprilshowers."

The picture understandably grabbed the attention of Americans across the country who couldn't believe what they were seeing.

Jim Cantore & Sam Champion are geeking out over this quadruple rainbow. Seriously, it's a #MustSee, you'll geek too!

"I didn't realize how rare it was. I just knew it was beautiful," Curtis told 1010 WINS. "My train was coming, but I just took out my phone, snapped a quick photo and ran after my train."

The Weather Channel also reached out to Curtis as soon as the picture started to spread. With further investigating, they determined it was real and couldn't believe their eyes.

"It just drove us crazy. I would have panicked," Sam Champion admitted. "I don't think I would have been able to pull out my phone and get the shot as quickly as you did and now it's just taken off."

Curtis, however, has no problem snapping pics while under pressure. "I was absolutely blown away by it," she shared on AMHQ. "I think we're breaking the Internet."
