What makes rainbows so mysterious is this simple but often puzzling fact: Rainbows are light. You can't touch them. You can't reach around behind them. They exist only in the eyes and sometimes the photographs of the people who see them.
A rainbow is visible light broken into what we see as seven colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. They always appear in the same order, with red on top and violet on the bottom, in a main rainbow. In a secondary rainbow, they appear in the opposite order.
