Travel Tips for Somerset

MOONBOW

by LoriPori

Also known as a lunar rainbow, a MOONBOW is a rainbow that occurs at night. Few places in the world feature this phenomenon, besides Kentucky's Cumberland Falls. Moonbows can be seen in Waimea Hawaii and Africa's Victoria Falls on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe.
The following explanation is courtesy of "The Weather Doctor"
"Moonbows formed as daylight rainbows do — except they arise from moonlight. When the moonlight strikes drops of falling rain in the sky opposite the moon, they are reflected and refracted within the raindrop, which acts like a prism and separates the moonlight into the rainbow spectrum.

Because moonlight is reflected sunlight, it has the same colour spectrum as sunlight. We see the moonbow as essentially colourless because human eyes do not perceive colours well at low-light levels. A camera, however, will catch the colours and produce a moonbow photo looking like a rainbow if properly exposed.

Since moonlight is less brilliant than sunlight, about the only time you might see a moonbow is when the moon is full or nearly full. And, of course, you need rain to make a moonbow. Because they are faint, moonbows are often obscured by air and light pollution present around most cities. For these reasons — and since scattered showers are more common during the day — moonbows are not often seen."

NATURAL ARCH

by LoriPori

Located in the Daniel Boone National Forest and towering above a forest woodland, the 50 by 9 foot NATURAL ARCH was formed by the erosion of wind, water and ice, that cut away the soft sandstone and left a hard rock cap that arches dramatically across the sky.
The arch's surrounding 945 acres were once home to prehistoric groups and later the hunting grounds of the Cherokee Indians.
Panoramic View Trail ( 0.55 miles ) begins at the parking lot, terminating at a scenic overlook.
Directions: Take US 27 south from Somerset for 21 miles, turn right (west) on Ky 927 and follow signs for 4 miles.
It was absolutely worth the little detour.

Ghosties

Somerset - fishing creek road - two car links past the last turnoff on left of road the road starts at a down hill grade when passing through at reported time of 11:30pm at recorded speed of 15mph's looking through rear view mirror a figure of a ghostly man will appear in back seat of your vehicle and will ride down to the end of the road of fishing creek park and will remain in the vehicle until returning him back to the curve where first sited.

Somerset - Soules chapel- reports of an overwhelming feeling of evil. Mist has been seen rising from some of the graves in the cemetery behind the church. Voices that were not heard by the people visiting the area have been picked on voice recorders. Orbs have also been seen in the church, in the cemetery and in the wooded area surrounding the church.

Somerset-Short creek-It is said that the "residents" of the local family cemetery come at midnight on a full moon to wade in the creek (thus it's strange cold even in summer). I have yet to get the guts up to observe this one myself!
