A rainbow is a meteorological phenomenon that appears as a multicoloured circular arc, usually identified as red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. It is caused by refraction of the sun's rays by rain and appears in the section of sky directly opposite the sun as a result of the reflection, refraction and dispersion of sunlight in water droplets.
