• More Sonic Rainbooms

    Are you guys sick of these yet?

    Technically not a sonic rainboom, but an interesting photograph nonetheless! This particular phenomenon is produced by the low-pressure air over the fuselage of the aircraft sucking it into the loop getting so cold that the water vapor condenses. The plane also happened to be hitting the sun just right, producing a rainbow!

    One more picture after the break!
