How Do Rainbows Form?

Rainbows happen when sunlight and raindrops come together in just the right way. Here’s a simple explanation:

When the sun is shining, and it’s raining at the same time, there’s a chance you can see a rainbow.

Sunlight is made up of many colors, but we usually don’t see them because they’re all mixed together.

As sunlight passes through the raindrops, the raindrops act like tiny prisms that bend and separate the sunlight into its
different colors, like red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.

The sunlight then bounces off the inside of the raindrop and comes back out, still separated into its colors.

If you’re standing in just the right spot with the sun behind you and the rain in front of you, you’ll see the colors of the sunlight spread out in a beautiful arc, forming a rainbow.
