Yes, my understanding is that all the normal rainbow stuff was going on at some altitude above us - so although the Sun had set at ground level it was still sing over the horizon and through rain that was itself at some altitude.

You can see that the 'bow doesn't make it all the way to the horizon - by contrast the top of it was higher in the sky than is normally the case.
