“Do not all charms fly
At the mere touch of cold philosophy?
There was an awful rainbow once in heaven:
We know her woof, her texture; she is given
In the dull catalogue of common things.”
— John Keats, “Lamia”
Rainbow means an arch of many colours that sometimes appears in the sky when the sun shines through rain. Rainbows are a symbol of hope in many cultures. They appear as perfect arcs, often during a rainstorm when the sun shines onto water droplets, shattering its white light into an array of brilliant colours.
Rainbow is the symbol of success, hope and fortune. Rainbow dreams symbolize purity and spirituality. The various vibrant colors of rainbow indicate happiness and create a lot of excitement in the air.
Different Types of Rainbows
There are more types of rainbows in the world than you may realize. When you see the typical rainbow that forms after a storm, you may think that is all there is to it.But in truth, there are all sorts of rainbows—some rarer than others. Each type of rainbow is created under different circumstances and falls either into primary or secondary types.
A fogbow is a type of rainbow that occurs when fog or a small cloud experience sunlight passing through them. The droplets of moisture from the fog work to diffract that light.
A lunar rainbow (aka “moonbow”) is another unusual sight. This event occurs on the moon during a lunar month. The moon must be almost fully lit up in order for this type of rainbow to form. When it does, it appears as a white arc.
● Multiple Rainbows
One of the rarest forms is multiple, or double, rainbows. They occur when several rainbows form in the same place at the same time. It takes at least one primary rainbow to generate this sight, as well as several other secondary rainbows. There is always space in between each one.
A twinned rainbow is also a rare sight to see. Though they have one base in common, two rainbows are formed, with one being primary and one being secondary. The colors of both rainbows are seen in the same sequence.
● Full Circle
This type of rainbow typically occurs in high altitude areas. At lower altitudes, the position of the sun prevents a full circle from being formed.
● Supernumerary bow
Supernumerary bows are yet another rare type. It occurs in primary rainbows, acting as another band inside of it. This type is created after the sunlight has hit drops of water 1 millimeter in size or less.
The colors of the rainbow in order are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. You can remember them with the acronym Roy G Biv!What Are The 7 Colors of The Rainbow in Order?
