Yosemite National Park's Waterfall's Moonbows

Yosemite National Park is well known for its waterfalls, with namesake Yosemite Falls likely being the most recognized.

In addition to being spectacular waterfalls, the waterfalls of Yosemite are also known for their Moonbows.

Of the waterfalls in Yosemite, Yosemite Falls is the site of the best Moonbows.

A Moonbow might more precisely be called a Lunar Rainbow. A Lunar Rainbow occurs when moonlight is reflected in the spray from a waterfall.

To see a Yosemite Moonbow the conditions you need are a clear night sky, bright moonlight and a waterfall falling a lot of water.
