There some interesting things about rainbows that people don’t know or they forget:
1. Everytime we see a rainbow, it’s after the rain. It means that the sun is always behind you and the rain in front of you when a rainbow appears. Thus, the centre of the rainbow’s arc is directly opposite the sun.
2. Many believe that the colors of the rainbow are only red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, but a rainbow is formed from numerous colours, even from those we can’t see.
3. People can see the colours of a rainbow due to the light of various colors that is refracted when goes from one medium, such as air, and into another, in our case, the raindrops formed up from water.
4. Every one of us sees their own “personal” rainbow. When you look at a rainbow, for example, you see the lights reflected of certain raindrops, while the person next to you, looking at the same rainbow, may see the light reflecting from a different angle, so it’s different. It means that every person sees rainbow colors accordingly to light and how her eyes perceive it.
5. The end of a rainbow can never be reached. When you move, the rainbow that you see with your eyes, moves as well as the raindrops are found in various sports in the atmosphere. In a few words, the rainbow will move aways while you are moving, at the same rate.]]>

Below you will find a list of the most frequently asked questions about rainbows with the best answers to learn more about this unique phenomenon.
1. What causes the rainbow?
A rainbow is caused by sun or moon light which interacts with raindrops. Raindrops commonly are round. Light entering raindrops is refracted and decomposed into various colors. This means that a rainbow is caused by the refraction of light inside rain drops, which determine white sunlight to be separated into different colors. If the sun is not illuminating the raindrops, there will be no rainbow formed.
2. Why is the rainbow colored?
The colors of the rainbow are formed by a phenomenon known as dispersion. Dispersion causes white light to break up into different components, when the light travels from one medium to another. Different colors of light have different directions, while white light consists of all possible colors.
3. What are the colors of the rainbow?
Commonly, the colors of the rainbow are considered to be red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. However, it is important to know that these colors are a continuous spectrum and not a set of distinctive colors.
4. Can I see a white rainbow?
A white rainbow can be caused by the moon. So, the moon, such as the sun, is also capable of producing rainbows. As a rainbow is formed by a mass of water droplets and light, the lunar rainbow can easily be formed as well. However, it is rare and it usually is so faint that humans cannot see or distinguish the colors. This is why when it occurs, the lunar rainbow is usually seen as white.
5. Why is the rainbow round?
One of the main reasons why the rainbow is round is given by the shape of the raindrops. Most raindrops are round, while the light from the sun is refracted by droplets over a certain angle. This is why the rainbow appears opposite to the sun. The rainbow is commonly seen above the horizon. Rainbows always appear round because they are formed at a constant angle around the anti-solar point.
6. Where is the end of the rainbow?
The rainbow has no end, or at least no end that could be localized. A rainbow is not a physical thing, so you cannot find its end. It is just an optical illusion: when you move, the rainbow also moves.
7. Why there are sometimes two rainbows?
A secondary rainbow can be produced by light which has reflected twice inside raindrops. The secondary rainbow will most likely have the color scheme reversed.
Children are always excited to see the rainbow, but actually every single person is amazed by the beauty and brilliance of this phenomenon.]]>
