Rainbow Lightning Strikes the UK

Rainbow lightning, which is the name of my next Queensrÿche cover band, was spotted by the BBC's Weather Watchers over the past weekend. Why did these two meteorological phenomena appear together? The BBC explains:

Firstly, there was a lot of energy within the atmosphere so when the thunderstorms developed there was plenty of electrical charge which produced a lot of lightning. The storms were also quite localised so there were sunny spells between the showers. And lastly, the timing was spot on. As the sun was setting, the angle of the sun was just right with the thunderstorm to form rainbows.

So: sorcery.
