Who doesn’t love rainbows? I mean, really, of all the things in nature, rainbows are definitely one of the coolest. No matter how old I get, when I see one it still makes me really happy. Not only are rainbows beautiful, but the science behind them is also quite amazing. Rainbows appear when sunlight hits raindrops at a specific angle and the light is refracted while entering, then reflected inside on the back of the droplet, and refracted again. It doesn’t physically exist and you can only see it if the sun is behind you. Amazing!
