Artist's Description

The science geeks over at Discovery explained that when the sun is at a low angle to the horizon it sends light through raindrops in the distance, which act as little prisms, refracting the light into its component colors and
“As soon as the sunlight is reflected out on the first reflection, it escapes at an angle of 40 to 42 degrees. But the sunlight hasn’t finished there. There’s another reflection. And this reflection sends the sunlight out at an angle of around 50 to 53 degrees. So you can see these two very distinct rainbows. You have the primary rainbow, very, very bright. That’s the first reflection, and you have a secondary rainbow which is ten degrees farther out, and a larger rainbow, coming out at about 50 to 53 degrees.”.
