06/07/19 Diary: Night Rainbow




I’m in fine spirits. I just miss her.

      I’ve seen moonbows, where the colors were so muted it was like you dreamed they were there. A very rare phenomenon, and very difficult to predict or see. Haunting.

    You saw “Drive”?? Whatever you do, do NOT watch “Duel.” It may be classic early Spielberg, but the story is by Richard Matheson, most famous for “Psycho.” Imagine the Bates Motel on wheels, chasing you. On second thought, don’t.

    “Duel” was a tv movie. Great mystery-chase movie.

    I have seen iridescent cloud rainbows & moon halos, but never a moon rainbow. Fascinating. I must look them up.

      They’re quite rare, moonbows. You need a nearly-full moon, a just-completed rainstorm between three and ten kilometers from you in the moon’s direction, and otherwise clear skies — uncommon conditions anywhere, but if you know what to look for, your chances of seeing one will go up dramatically.

      “Duel” was originally a 74-minute TV movie, but all copies available today are 90 minutes, because Spielberg added the entire dialog with the target’s wife and a few other scenes for worldwide theatrical release. The TV movie no longer exists unless you’ve got it on Betamax from the original broadcast. Odd business, movies.
