Summary AuthorGeert SassenJim Foster

This "odd couple" photo was captured in the eastern Mediterranean Sea on November 24, 2011 at about 4:00 p.m. The weather at the time of the photo seemed quite benign; calm seas, rather light westerly winds, fairly high barometric pressure (30.03 in or 1017.3 mb), air temperature of 78 F (25.5 C). I was aboard the Dutch container vesselMaersk Kalmar, of which I'm captain, and was surprised to see a rainbow and waterspout in such close proximity to one another. I estimated the spout to be approximately 1,000 ft (304 m) from my position.
