Stunning rainbow graces the sky above Malta

Social media users have captured stunning photos of a beautiful rainbow arching over Malta.

Commuters took to Instagram and Facebook to share their snaps as they enjoyed the magnificent sight on their way back from work on Thursday afternoon.

The striking rainbow dominated the Maltese skyline following another spell of thundery showers.

There may be no such thing as pots of gold, but it was a nice ending to Thursday.

Here’s a selection of your best photos.

It comes as the Met Office in Luqa predicted more thunderstorms to hit Malta and Gozo on Friday ahead of a mild and sunny weekend.

An unstable air mass passing through the Mediterranean is the cause of the blustery winds and thunderstorms.
