Stunning pictures have been captured of a rainbow over the World Trade Center - just a day before the anniversary of 9/11.
The rainbow appeared over lower Manhattan at about 8am local time on Thursday, and was soon being widely shared on social media.
Friday marks the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks which took the lives of 2,977 people, including 67 Britons, when passenger jets hijacked by al-Qaeda terrorists struck the twin towers of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in 2001.

Some social media users spotted a double rainbow that appeared during what was a cloudy day, between rainstorms.
One image captured the rainbow covering the whole city.
The rainbow was also spotted over other New York landmarks, including the Empire State building.
Danish architect Bjarke Ingels has designed an 80 storey building for 2 World Trade Center, which will be 1,340 ft tall.
The plans, estimated to cost $4bn, are still in development although the foundation for the site's second skyscraper has been laid since 2013.Reuse content
