As 50,000 people remembered the 49 victims of the Orlando shooting at Pulse nightclub, a rainbow appeared in the sky above the vigil.

The shooting happened at a gay nightclub, and the rainbow is a symbol of gay pride.

Local Christian, Muslim and Jewish leaders shared messages of support.

The name of each victim was read during the vigil, which ended with the crowd chanting "one Orlando, Orlando united."
