A new record was set last Thursday when two scientists in Taiwan recorded a rainbow that lasted an incredible nine hours.

Chou Kun-hsuan and Liu Ching-huang, both professors in the Department of Atmospheric Science at the Chinese Culture University, were observing a rainbow for their studies last week when gradually, they realized that something very unusual was going on. Rainbows typically last much less than an hour, so they were shocked when the colorful phenomenon they were watching so carefully failed to dissipate.

According to Chou, the rainbow started at 6:57 a.m. and lasted until 3:55 PM, or 8 hours and 58 minutes. If confirmed, this will shatter the previous record set in Wetherby in Yorkshire, United Kingdom on March 14, 1994, which was recorded as lasting from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. or six hours.

Rainbows are a powerful symbol in the Torah, the postdiluvian sign of God's promise to Noah that He would never again destroy the world through flooding.
