A Rainbow Appeared At The World Trade Center Just Before 9/11 Anniversary


A rainbow appeared over New York City on the day before the anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks -- with one end seemingly leading to the World Trade Center.

Ben Sturner, founder of the Leverage Agency, dubbed it the #magicalrainbow and shared images of the natural wonder on Twitter:

Another image captured by Sturner not only shows the complete rainbow spanning much of Manhattan, but portions of a second rainbow just above it:

The images quickly made their way around Twitter, with one person writing, "THIS is why there are so many songs about Rainbows."

Others in New York shared their own rainbow images on social media:

Friday marks the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, which left 2,977 people dead at the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon in Washington D.C. and Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where United Airlines Flight 93 crashed after passengers seized control of the plane from hijackers.
