But Melissa, from London in Ontario, Canada didn’t even realise until she looked at the images later on.

She was travelling from North America to Hounduras and spotted an interesting cloud formation below.

Photographer, Melissa Rensen, was travelling from North America to Hondouras when she noticed the incredible cloud formations

And after looking back at the shot she noticed the blanket of colour covering the expanse below.

Melissa, who runs her own cleaning service, said: “I was passing time on our long flight and looked out the window to see hundreds of these little cotton-like clouds.

Jaw dropping: Melissa said: “I’d never experienced anything like it and I doubt I ever will again.”

“I noticed how shadows were cast on the Caribbean Sea and thought it was such a beautiful scene I had to snap some shots.

“When I saw the rainbow in the shot I was stunned – I’d never experienced anything like it and I doubt I ever will again.

“Having not seen the rainbow with my naked eye, it wasn’t until I reviewed the images later that I saw this brightly coloured rainbow.

“At first I thought maybe it was caused by jet fuel vapour or perhaps from the polarized window on the plane, but then another photographer friend of mine pointed out that the rainbow was beneath the clouds.

“All my uncertainty faded and I knew I’d captured something special.”
