Stena Lagan

It looks like Stena Lagan suffered an engine failure coming across the Irish Sea: she arrived three hours late, with tug assistance, after crossing at 13kt instead of her normal 18–20. The word on the internet is that she took on a load of contaminated or out-of-spec lubricating oil.

A rainbow at sunset: the sun was lower than me so the arc of the rainbow extends below the horizontal.
