A beautiful rainbow was captured emerging from New York City's World Trade Center on Thursday, the day before the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

A Twitter user named Ben Sturner snapped a few photos that show how the rainbow appeared to burst out of the tower and shoot across the island of Manhattan.

#magicalrainbow few more photos I took of the Rainbow originating from World Trade Center the day before 9-11

Sturner called it a "magical rainbow."

Amazing NYC Rainbow today. Originating from #worldtradecenter the day before #911

From certain vantage points, the rainbow appeared to cover the entirety of Manhattan.

And some people also saw a double rainbow.

Friday marks the 14th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks that destroyed the original Twin Towers.
