President Barack Obama gave off good vibes as he waved farewell to Jamaica on Thursday.

While he was preparing to board Air Force One, a rainbow appeared high in the sky, and cameras managed to get the president's picture perfect goodbye. The White House's official photographer, Pete Souza, snapped an image of Obama waving with the rainbow appearing to arch right out of his hand.

"So long Jamaica," Souza wrote on Instagram.

Obama spent two days in Jamaica, meeting dignitaries and paying homage to reggae legend Bob Marley. He left Kingston, Jamaica, for Panama to attend the two-day Summit of the Americas, which kicked off Friday.
