TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A Guinness World Records committee will hold a formal ceremony March 17 at the Chinese Culture University (CCU) to recognize Taiwan as the new record holder of the longest lasting rainbow in the world.

The rainbow was recorded on Nov. 30, 2017 by Chou Kun-hsuan \ and Liu Ching-huang, professors in the Department of Atmospheric Science at CCU, from the roof of the Dayi Building on the CCU campus.

According to Chou, the rainbow started at 6:57 a.m. and lasted until 3:55, or 8 hours and 58 minutes. This record shattered the previous record set in Wetherby in Yorkshire, UK on Mar. 14, 1994, which was recorded lasting from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Members of the Guinness World Record committee, the Central Weather Bureau Chief, CCU professors and students, the Taipei City Tourism Bureau Director, and the Yangming Mountain National Park Service Director will attend the ceremony.

I thought Rainbows have blue at the bottom and red at the top. On double rainbows the top rainbow is the opposite. It starts with red at the bottom and blue at the top. That ice cream has it reversed.

That's only in the Southern Hemisphere and the rainbows are, of course, upside down.

I call shenanigans on this - how could they see the rainbow was still there when the sun was overhead 11-1? What does that even look like? Why is there no picture of THAT?

The sun is likely not overhead in November due to earth tilt.
