Fogbows usually appear in the Arctic Ocean whenever overcast skies clear, as water droplets in the fog reflect and refract the beams of sunlight.

Researchers from WHOI and six other institutions have been exploring the Arctic seafloor for the past month a journey that they will describe in a telephone call today to a museum in Boston.
