MOSCOW, November 27 (Itar-Tass) -- A bright rainbow was clearly seen on the gray sky in the center of Moscow at 3. 45 p.m. Monday. It was quite a phenomenon to see a rainbow in this part of the world at the end of November. Actually, two parallel rainbows seemed to stem from the complex of the Kremlin buildings and the building of the State Duma in the center of Moscow.
"This was a rare phenomenon to see at that time of the year," assistant Chief of the Russian Weather Monitoring Service Natalia Yershova told Tass. " Usually, there is a snow blanket in Moscow at the end of November, while a rainbow is seen only if there is sunshine with air temperatures above zero and high humidity", Yershova said.
The rainbow stayed in the sky for a quarter of an hour, and then, the colorful miracle slowly faded, leaving no sign of its glamour on the dark, autumn sky.
