Dense fog is not uncommon on San Nicolas Island, where I work as a weather observer at the airport. On Monday, March 13, a very shallow layer of dense fog moved over the airport around 8 a.m., and persisted for a couple of hours. The scene was rather surreal as the sun was visible through the fog layer. As the sun rose higher in the sky, the fog “burned off” and revealed a fogbow towards the west. I had seen my first fogbow a couple of weeks earlier here, but it had disappeared by the time I got my camera ready. The one today lasted for at least 15 minutes, providing plenty of time to get shots. This fogbow was typical in that it was white with very little color to it. As the fog dissipated over the airport, so did the fogbow. Pictured here with and without the fogbow is the airport control tower.
