Believe it or not, but Swiss photographer Stefan Forster captured an extremely rare rainbow in the Namib desert during extreme thunderstorms that only happen every 50 to 80 years or so!

Annual precipitation ranges from 2 millimetres (0.079 in) in the most arid regions to 200 millimetres (7.9 in) at the escarpment, making the Namib the only true desert in southern Africa.

Having endured arid or semi-arid conditions for roughly 55–80 million years, the Namib may be the oldest desert in the world.

After the storm, the whole desert became green.

Last year, the Atacama desert was covered by snow! And that is another amazing desert phenomenon!
