“ROYGIBIV” isn’t some alien language–it’s the acronym known the world over as the colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet! And what a sight to behold, those rainbows are! That’s why April 3rd is set aside on the calendar of very special days to celebrate–so people all over the world can stop and appreciate the beauty of this complex scientific reaction to the atmosphere!
If you want to get technical about it, a rainbow, according to The Franklin Institute, is “a band of colors assembled an an arc that is formed by reflection and refraction (bending) of the sun’s rays inside millions of raindrops. Rainbows appear when it’s raining in one part of the sky and sunny in another part.”
Not so technical is the reaction we all have to the sight of that spectacular display of color and light! You don’t have to be a brain scientist or a rocket surgeon to know that rainbows just plain make us happy! And did you know that everyone sees a rainbow differently? Since the sun is always behind you and the rain always in front of you when a rainbow appears, you will have a completely different view of the rainbow than the person standing right next to you, because you each will have a different visual angle of the rainbow! You will see the light bounce off of certain raindrops, and others will see the light reflecting off of other raindrops for a unique perspective! It just doesn’t get more personal than that!
It’s also believed that rainbows emit a vast amount of positive energy; plus, the beautiful rainbow is considered to be a universal symbol of peace and harmony! You won’t get an argument there from anyone!
