Insane footage of a rainbow forming right next to a watersprout in Cancun

Rainbows have been spotted in the strangest of places, and last week was no different.

A vacationer in Cancun, Mexico spotted a rainbow form near a waterspout in Cancun, Mexico.

The vacationer captured the above footage early on Saturday, Jan. 28 after waking up to find an incredible view in the Caribbean Sea.

Waterspouts are columns of cloud-filled wind that can occur when a tornado forms over a large body of water. There are two major types of water-based tornadoes: tornadic waterspouts and fair-weather waterspouts.

Tornadic waterspouts begin as tornadoes and are influenced by winds from severe thunderstorms. The more common, and fortunately less dangerous, fair-weather waterspouts descend from clouds that are as fast-moving -- giving them a tendency to remain static.
