Is that an upside down rainbow in the sky or are you just happy to see me?

I’m not sure if its the “Irish Eyes” smiling upon us a bit early this year. But a photographer has captured this rainbow that’s not really a rainbow. It is called a circumzenithal arc which appears  when hexagonal ice crystals are formed in the sky. These ice crystals bend the light to form the smiling rainbow. (Notice the colors are actually reversed as compared to a rainbow)
