Have you ever seen a double rainbow? I could probably count on one hand the number of double rainbows I’ve seen. So, when I do see one, I consider it a double blessing.
I recently ran across these facts about double rainbows that I wanted to share with you. They are from my local my local weatherman.
- A secondary rainbow is not especially uncommon.
- The secondary rainbow is cause by one extra reflection of sunlight within the raindrops.
- Since the double rainbow is only about 30 or 40 percent as bright as the primary bow, the secondary bow may go unnoticed when the primary bow is fairly dim.
- The order of colors is reversed in the secondary bow.
Have you seen a double rainbow or a triple rainbow? If so, did you see it in Hawaii or somewhere else?
