Rainbow!

Yesterday was an awesome day for me!

Seeing a double rainbow was very fascinating to me! Gracing itself in the sky was much breathtaking sight.

The complete wonderfulness is when it showed all its colors! 

An easy way to remember the colors of the rainbow is by using the acronym called “VIBGYOR

V – Violet, I – Indigo, B – Blue, G – Green, Y – Yellow, O – Orange, R – Red

So, when can we expect a rainbow?

Generally, it will be sunny when you see a rainbow, but rain clouds will be just a short distance away.

Fun Fact : A rainbow arch is a 42 degree angle starting from the direction opposite from the sun.

Did you know that no two people see the same rainbow, why?

A person standing next to you is standing in a slightly different spot and sees the rainbow in a slightly different place.  The rainbow may look the same but there a little different because the person next to you sees different raindrops.

Fun Fact: On the ground we only see a semi-circle rainbow but from very high up such as on an airplane you can see a rainbow in a complete circle.

So, have you ever tried making a rainbow at home? If not, try this out!

  1. Try standing with your back to the sun.  
  2. Take a water hose and spray it in front of you keeping the sun behind you.
  3.  Watch what happens. A rainbow should form.
