We’ve all seen a double rainbow if not in real life then certainly on YouTube.

But Tuesday morning Amanda Curtis captured something that puts that double to shame.

Try a quadruple rainbow.

“I didn’t realize how rare it was, I just knew it was beautiful,” Curtis told New York radio station 1010 WINS. “My train was coming, but I just took out my phone, snapped a quick photo and ran after my train.”

Curtis shared the photo on Twitter and her picture was quickly retweeted and shared all over the internet by thousands of people.

Curtis, CEO of Nineteenth Amendment, said she caught the incredible sight near the commuter rail station in Glen Cove, New York.
