Rainbows are often seen when the sun comes out after or during a
rainstorm. Rainbows are caused when sunlight shines through drops of
water in the sky at specific angles. When white sunlight enters a raindrop,

it exits the raindrop a different color. When light exits lots of different
raindrops at different angles, it produces the red, orange, yellow, green,
blue, indigo, and violet that you see in a rainbow. Together, these colors
are known as the spectrum. These colors can sometimes be seen in
waterfalls and fountains as well.
Did you know that there are double rainbows? In a double rainbow, light
reflects twice inside water droplets and forms two arcs. In most double
rainbows, the colors of the top arc are opposite from those in the bottom
arc. In other words, the order of colors starts with purple on top and ends
with the red on bottom. In addition, rainbows sometimes appear as white
arcs at night. These rainbows are called moon bows and are so rare that
very few people will ever see one. Moon bows are caused by moonlight
(rather than sunlight) shining through drops of water.
