Two short sections of haze bands show rainbow-like colours (brown on one side, bluish on the other side), A few such ‘rainbow bands’ have been seen previously but this is the first time that any have shown up in two successive images, confirming their reality. They are among the extensive haze bands in and around the bland zone. The images also include anticyclonic white ovals of the N5 domain. --John Rogers & Gerald Eichstädt.
