The photo was snapped by ALL Fashion CEO and co-founder Amanda Curtis in Long Island and it quickly went viral, having hundreds of retweets in just minutes. Curtis told CNN Affiliate, WPIX:
"It's been surreal I feel like we're breaking the Internet but in a really great way ... I just posted a photo that I thought others would enjoy and apparently they have and now it’s reaching a ton of people.”
And, this is a woman after my own heart. The hard-working CEO is cashing in on her viral 15-minutes of fame. She is offering her customers $25 off of their first purchase when they use the promo code "rainbow" at checkout.
Although quadruple rainbows are rare, they are possible and by all accounts, the photo is real. Watch the video below from PBS on the science behind rainbows to get a better idea of exactly how a quadruple rainbow is possible.
