Rainbow in the Sky!



How times fly so fast, another day for skywatch again. It's (almost) Friday again, and that means Sky Watch Friday!



Why is the rainbow colored? The colors are produced by a phenomenon called dispersion. Dispersion causes white light, which consists of all possible colors to split up, when the light travels from one par to another.

  9. There's something about the colours in the sky (in addition to the rainbow), when we have sun and black clouds at the same time. The colourful buildings also enhance the picture.

  21. Now we know what is at the end of the rainbow, yours at least.
    Did you know that no two people see the same rainbow?
    Thank you for peeking in, I liked your looking at the fog and dew too. Sorry but no rainbows today in that fog.
    Happy SkyWatching!
