I saw the most beautiful rainbow in Philly last night! It was so vibrant and arched over the Ben Franklin bridge as the sun was setting to create the most amazing view.
It’s a double rainbow! What does it mean?

Haha, saw a double rainbow in New York too! Happy Friday!!
Every time you see a rainbow there are always 2 of them but its just that the first is way more prominent than the second one. A rainbow occurs when light gets trapped in the water particles in the air and that light refracts once like a prism and creates a rainbow of colors. For the second rainbow to occur the light has to refract twice in the water particle, which is less common, hence why the second rainbow always goes uunnoticed since its more faint. But the cool thing is that the second rainbow will be an inverse of the first so the violet will be on the outside and the red on the inner part of the rainbow!! Also yu can create your own rainbows!! You have to have some initial conditions but it’s a cool project to do, simply google it :) Just wanted to share my love for rainbows with all you FP lovers!! Incredible pic!!! Xox
