As this event started Deeling was already preparing to photograph this missile silo by the side of the road, a live relic of the 60's secret "Holding The Public Hostage To Annihilation" dictum detailed in the 2012 book THE MISSILE NEXT DOOR
Saturday April 4th, 2015
We were up earlier watching the Red Moon eclipse. Then on the way home from Bozeman driving up I-15 shortly before sunset, along the Missouri River, towards Ulm, Montana, we witnessed a truly amazing real life personal observation in the region of "Ohtahku", the same general area where another unusual April thunderstorm hit during a Peace Pipe Ceremony when the First Peoples Buffalo Jump State Park was blessed and consecrated, as told elsewhere on this website and blog.
True story Blood Red Moon day evening:
While traveling north between Cascade and Ulm, as we came up the rise to the top of the ridge before Ulm, a rainbow rose out of the armed nuclear missile silo just to the right of, and really close to, the freeway. The Rainbow proceeded through the whole valley over a matter of minutes as we traveled along in gentle rainstorm. It bathed all in the path of its glorious prism like a tornado of color. You could see the end of the rainbow all the time as its bottom glow permeated buildings, trees, the sand dunes, the river, everything. It was a visual smudging of violated sacred ground.
We followed it for 5 minutes or so while "Crow Testament" played in the car (off the Ghost Town Sound lp that was already running). As we made the turn through Ulm and up the next hill the mystic rainbow crossed the freeway where another car had stopped to witness the end of the rainbow that then kissed the cliffs as it slowly panned along the last remnant slice of the world's largest buffalo jump and, in a micro-second, disappeared. This area is the site of the Plains Indians largest summer's end gatherings of all tribes, massive in scope, that went on for centuries.

This rarity ranks with the rainbow lightning we witnessed shooting from the tops of thunder clouds into the upper atmosphere for hours driving back from Glacier Park with Grandma Dorothy 20 or so years ago. That event is referenced in the Ghost Town Sound lp song "Summer Is Comin' " in the quick line "Rainbow lightning shoots stratosphere".
