A photo of a rainbow over New York City is going viral...particularly because of its timing. 

Yesterday, the day before the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, a New York businessman snapped a photo of a rainbow over the city. 

Its origin? The World Trade Center. 

Check out the photo below. 

Dozens of residents followed suit, capturing their own photos of the remarkable sight.
