The day before the 14th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, New Yorkers received a break from the rain and were treated to a double rainbow on Thursday.

New York City resident Ben Sturner captured an image of the rainbow which seemed to touch down where the Twin Towers once stood.

Sturner shared the breathtaking photo on Twitter, inspiring many social media users and turning a painful reminder of tragedy into a symbol of hope and resilience.

"I see this rainbow, and it's coming from the World Trade Center and it's the most gorgeous rainbow I've ever seen," Sturner said in an interview with NBC 4 New York. "It gives me chills.”

Others shared their own images of the rainbow on social media, a powerfully stark reminder that there is beauty after the storm.
