A man captured a photo of a rare and beautiful «moonbow» during a lightning storm in the English countryside this weekend.

Ian Glendinning snapped the picture in the Coquet Valley in Northumberland, England, at around 2 a.m. local time on Sunday.

— Moonbows are not particularly rare but not often seen, as most people don’t go out in the dark in the middle of the night when it’s raining, —  Glendinning told ABC News.

Lunar rainbows are formed when moonlight, rather than sunlight, is refracted by moisture in the atmosphere, according to ABC News’ partner BBC.
