Immediately after snapping this beautiful photo, the entire crew at the OSU Hatfield Marine Science ship operations center raced over to the Bayfront hoping to dig up pots of gold at each end of the rainbow. But when they got there, they discovered the rainbow had moved slightly north. Running wildly, the crew raced northward, more northward, more northward, until the rainbow slowly faded.
But despite being swept up in the whirlwind of excitement, Demian Bailey managed to remember that we here at News Lincoln County love pretty pictures to share with our community, in this case the rainbow over Research Vessels Oceanus, Wecoma and Elakha. Thank you Demien for the beautiful gift!
