Thursday/ a rainbow after the rain

It rained on and off all day here in Seattle, and so when the sun came out and struck the new green leaves on the tree in the street, I went to the upstairs window to take a look. That’s when I noticed the rainbow. I ran downstairs and took a picture.  All rainbows appear opposite of where the sun is (so I am looking east), and they are actually are full circles! – but most observers just see what is to them, the upper half of the arc.

This rainbow was visible at 7.30 pm from my front porch.  And is it my imagination, or is there the faintest secondary rainbow out there above it? I think I do see it !
