Rainbow Facts

Happy Thankful Thursday!! 

May your day be terrific!

Don’t forget to take a moment and count all the blessings you have to be thankful for today!!


We are on letter Rr of the gratitude alphabet. R is for rainbow!  What are you thankful for that begins with the letter R?

Jinger and Joey think rainbows are awesome! Joey wants to tell you about rainbows. A rainbow is a multicolored arc that appears (forms) up in the sky. Did you know that there are 12 types of rainbows? That is a lot of different types of rainbows. Rainbows are formed by water and light. The drops of rain act like tiny prisms when the sunlight passes through the drops of rain. There are seven colors in a rainbow. The colors are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. You can remember the colors by the acronym Roy. G. Biv.


Is your favorite color in the rainbow?


Facts about rainbows:

1. Here is a list of the twelve (12) types of rainbows in alphabetical order:

Circumhorizontal arcs

Double rainbows


Full-circle rainbow

Higher-order rainbows

Monochrome rainbow


Reflected rainbow

Reflection rainbow


Supernumerary rainbows

Twinned rainbow

2. Did you know that all rainbows are full circles, but they look like arcs when viewed from the ground? No two people can see the rainbow exactly the same. That is because we can’t stand in the same spot at the same exact time so we each see the rainbow differently.

3. A quadruple rainbow is the rarest kind of rainbow. There have only been about five (5) documented sightings of a quadruple rainbow since the 1700’s.

4. You can see more rainbows in tropical areas where there are waterfalls nearby.

5. Earth is the only planet in our solar system where rainbows are possible. That is because earth is the only planet known to have water.

6. Rainbows are a symbol for peace and harmony and GOD’s promise to us that the world will not be destroyed by a flood again. The rainbow is also a sign of a covenant between GOD and the earth.
