After a severe storm Monday that caused flash flooding in and around New York City, the lightning and thunder eventually gave way to a beautiful sunset — and a double rainbow all the way across the sky. 

People of the city turned their cellphones skyward to snap photos of the phenomenon. Instagram user casey2cook shared a video that shows the rainbow stretching all the way from the Empire State Building to One World Trade. 

"I witnessed the most unspeakably beautiful thing," shared Instagram user phanke85 along with a photo of the double rainbow. 

Lin-Manuel Miranda, writer and composer of the Broadway hit "Hamilton," even joined in on the beauty, sharing a collage of photos of the double rainbow. 

"Still on vacation but would you look at what someone hung up in the sky over my city?" he tweeted Monday. "Love y'all."
