Mother Nature at her finest

Not much to say, mostly pictures.
I just happened to go outside Thursday evening and saw this. This picture was taken at 5:31 looking south east over the desert. 
 Then I noticed it was a double rainbow, can barely see the second one.
 Just more pictures of it with different zoom. 
 I turned around and saw this scene out front. Look almost due west. 
 More of the rainbow.

 Moving the camera to look a little more north east. See the blue sky. Still in our back yard overlooking the Wetlands and the mountains. 
 Back at rainbow.
 It is now 5:41 - the rainbow has been there for 10 minutes and is still bright.
 Walked out front to check on sunset. 

 Out back the rainbow is gone now 5:48. And the rain is moving more north.
 Strange sky out front, partly yellow and partly blue. 
 Looking right at the horizon, some colors

 And no another rainbow, this one is faint but there, right above the garage. 
 Back out back to check it out. 
The last of the sunset. We got just enough rain drops to dirty the windshield of the Jeep. Bill was right there with his towel cleaning it off. 
Just a short video I took. The blue sky, the rainbow and the clouds out front. As I pan over the house you can see a jet leaving the Vegas airport/ It must have been a popular departure time as they were going one right after the other. When I ask,"is that an RC plane?" It is because we could hear an RC plane flying over the Wetlands,  the Radio Control airport is right next to us. 

And then about 9:30 we heard the coyotes yipping and howling in the desert.
