What is a Rainbow?
A rainbow is defined as an arc of refracted colours formed by the dispersion of sunlight in water droplets. There is a whole spectrum of colours but the most common colours associated with a rainbow are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. The typical arc that you would normally see when on the ground is actually only part of the rainbow, the rest is obscured by the ground. The higher your altitude the more of it you will see, eventually getting high enough to see the whole bow, a whole circle. You can sometimes, with the right conditions, see a double bow and this is explained beautifully in the short video below.
