Shortly before 7 p.m. on Monday, I looked out my kitchen window in White River Junction and thought, “Holy smokes! Look at that sky!”
It was dark and cloudy to the east while the sun was dropping low in the west, illuminating houses and trees in golden light against a deep, moody backdrop.
So I took a walk around my neighborhood, ending up on Highland Avenue (near Hartford’s high and middle schools), where I saw a little sliver of rainbow (my picture is below).
Turns out, around that time, Tom Caruso (whose picture is above) and a bunch of other Upper Valley residents — particularly in the core of White River Junction and West Lebanon — were taking in the same sight.
It’s kind of neat to think about a bunch of people looking up at the same thing across a region, so this post includes a bunch of their pictures (all used with permission). The map below marks where the photos were shot.

And last but not least, the view from the Valley News parking lot!
EDIT: And one more! From the @lebnh Instagram, also taken from the airport.
