National Find A Rainbow Day is observed on April 3 of every year. Rainbow is caused when a light source is viewed at a particular angle on water droplets. Rainbows appear in full circle, but the observer can only see an arc due to illuminated droplets above the ground. Rainbows are not precisely located at a specific distance; it is not a physical object so it can not be touched or felt. Human eyes can see seven colours of the rainbow, i.e., red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet, ROYGBIV. Rainbows can be caused by rain, mist, spray, and airborne dew. Rainbows are an interesting and beautiful form of nature.
“We needed something to express our joy, our beauty, our power. And the rainbow did that.” – Gilbert Baker
