Fog bows, white rainbows, cloud bows, sea dogs
We traveled through scattered ice this morning.
For most of the morning, we had a **beautiful **fog bow in front of the ship.
A fog bow is like rain bow in that it is caused by sunlight shining onto water droplets. Because the water droplets that cause fog are very small, the fog bow has little or no color.
