TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – A clip shared on Twitter capturing the stunning view of a “full circle” rainbow last December has received more than 9 million views and been retweeted over 300,000 times.
Keat Grant, a 21-year-old Twitter user from California, posted the footage on Dec. 19 last year, asking “Have you ever seen a full rainbow before?” The location where the rainbow was spotted was not revealed, but the man apparently was standing on a balcony high above the ground when he filmed the footage.
The natural wonder was made even more breathtaking against the backdrop of a clear sky and above an aquamarine bay. “It’s definitely a portal to another universe,” he concluded.
The post has been flooded with comments expressing awe at the unusual sight. Alluding to the folklore that a pot of gold can be found at the end of a rainbow, a Twitter user quipped that since “it’s a circle technically there is no end, so we got bamboozled.”
