A rainbow is an optical and meteorological phenomenon that causes a spectrum of light to appear in the sky when the Sun shines on to droplets of moisture in the Earth’s atmosphere. It takes the form of a single arc. Rainbows caused by sunlight always appear in the section of sky directly opposite the sun.
And as he spoke of understanding, I looked up and saw the rainbow leap with flames of many colors over me.
And when it rains on your parade, look up rather than down. Without the rain, there would be no rainbow.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.
Before we had airplanes and astronauts, we really thought that there was an actual place beyond the clouds, somewhere over the rainbow. There was an actual place, and we could go above the clouds and find it.there.
I know that if odour were visible, as colour is, I’d see the summer garden in rainbow clouds.
It was the rainbow gave thee birth, and left thee all her lovely hues.
W. H. Davies
Somewhere, over the rainbow, Way up tall, There’s a land where they’ve never heard of cholesterol.
The white light streams down to be broken up by those human prisms into all the colors of the rainbow.
Charles R Brown
“A rainbow wouldn’t be a rainbow if it was missing a single color.”
John Quale HRN
“Rainbows apologize for angry skies.”
“Everyone wants happiness,
No one wants pain,
But you can’t have a rainbow,
Without a little rain”
Rainbows can be observed whenever there are water drops in the air and sunlight shining from behind at a low altitude angle. The most spectacular rainbow displays happen when half the sky is still dark with raining clouds and the observer is at a spot with clear sky in the direction of the sun. The result is a luminous rainbow that contrasts with the darkened background.
