Sun Rain and Rainbow

Sun, Rain and Rainbow

Have you wondered how is that whenever it rains while the sun is shining in the sky, you are most likely to see a rainbow? Is it because God likes to colour in the sky in such lovely weather? Well that is something that little babies think. But for you I will tell you the real reason.

You probably know that there are seven colors in the rainbow – VIBGYOR!
The letters stand for the first letter of each color.
V-violet, I-indigo, B-blue, G-green, Y-yellow, O-orange,R-red.
Look at the rainbow below.

What you don’t know is that the light around us – sunlight, looks white but is made up of seven colors – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. Yes! That’s true! All these colors in the light mixed together make white light!! Now when it rains along with the sun shining, water droplets in the sky break white sunlight into the seven colors, creating a rainbow. You can only see a rainbow if the Sun is behind you and the rain in front.

Amazing fact
Some people believe that a pot of gold can be found at the rainbow’s end.But in reality rainbows are made in the sky so they don’t even touch the ground.If you’re on the ground, however far you walk, the end of the rainbow will always seem farther away.
