WORD OF THE WEEK
Rainbows are formed opposite to the sun by the refraction and reflection of the sun's rays in drops of falling rain.
The raindrops are responsible for the colors of rainbows. They break the sunlight up into the full spectrum of colors, each drop acting as a sort of miniature prism. When millions of raindrops gather, the spectrum shows up as distinct bands of color -- each with a different length. Red is the longest and violet the shortest band.
