Were you moved by the stirring exhortations of the Double Rainbow Guy back in 2010? Of course you were—you have two eyes and a heart. But it’s 2015 now and the times have changed. Double rainbows are out. Quadruple rainbows are in.

This is the quadruple rainbow as shared by Long Island resident Amanda Curtis, who spotted the meteorological phenomenon during her morning commute. Quadruple rainbows are immensely rare; the first one was only photographed in 2011.
Others in the tristate area also tweeted their quadruple-rainbow photos, but none could quite compare to Curtis’s snapshot of the elusive QR.

If this is the first sign of the apocalypse, we’re not even mad. Look at that thing!
