This will surely take your breath away. A double rainbow appeared over New York City early Monday evening, as the city commemorated the 22nd anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Images of the double rainbow filled social media following Monday afternoon's thunderstorms in the city.

As you can see in the video posted above, the rainbows were quite large too as they appeared to span the length of the city.

Some tweets (posted on the X platform) noted that they appeared to run from One World Trade to the Empire State Building.
