Sydney residents were treated to a stunning view on Wednesday evening when a double rainbow appeared over the city just before the sunset.

People took to social media in their droves to share their pictures of the two rainbows, which many were able to catch in their entirety, showing two perfect crescents across the sky.

After the rainbows disappeared the city was blanketed by a red and orange sky as the sun set.
