Amanda Curtis snapped this pic of a rare quadruple rainbow while waiting for her Long Island train to New York on the morning of 21 April 2015. Curtis was waiting at Glen Cove station when she spotted it. The area had recently received a large amount of rain and the sun started to peek through the clouds, setting the stage for the rare phenomenon.

According to CNN, this type of quadruple rainbow occurs when a double rainbow is reflected in sky due to a smooth body of water underneath the rainbow. To see more amazing pictures of rainbows, click here.
