(NASA)  A Full Circle Rainbow over Australia
Have you ever seen an entire rainbow? From the ground, typically, only the top portion of a rainbow is visible because directions toward the ground have fewer raindrops. From the air, though, the entire 360 degree circle of a rainbow is more commonly visible. Pictured here, a full circle rainbow was captured over Cottesloe Beach near Perth, Australia last year by a helicopter flying between a setting sun and a downpour. An observer-dependent phenomenon primarily caused by the internal reflection of sunlight by raindrops, the 84-degree diameter rainbow followed the helicopter, intact, for about 5 kilometers. As a bonus, a second rainbow that was more faint and color-reversed was visible outside the first.

#WILDERNESS50 - #YOURWILDERNESS is managed by a passionate set of BLM staff, volunteers and partners

California is fortunate to be home to an extensive part of the wilderness system.  We have it all here - from the majestic coast of the King Range to the stark beauty of the desert’s Mecca Hills.  And most importantly we have a passionate set of BLM staff, volunteers, and partners who are devoted to ensuring that these areas are managed in the best interest of current and future generations. We have come a long way in the last 50 years and we will continue to preserve these special places while highlighting their importance. — Jim Kenna, BLM California State Director

BLM California employees, local residents and visitors enjoy diverse and rugged wilderness areas managed by the BLM, like the King Range Wilderness, Mecca Hills Wilderness and the Slinkard Wilderness Study Area pictured here. Photos by Bob Wick, BLM
