A rare rainbow appears on Lake Yamanaka near Mt. Fuji

This Twitter user has recently posted a photo of an extremely rare looking rainbow hovering above Lake Yamanaka near Mt. Fuji. I’ve never seen one like that before. Looking closely, it’s actually a double rainbow, with the outer arch barely visible.

“A mysterious rainbow appeared on Lake Yamanaka.
Today just after 2PM, while running along the lakeshore,
a rare rainbow appeared on the surface of the lake.
It looked similar to one that appeared last year on July 22, 2015.
What kind of phenomenon is this?”
