Rainbow!


Do you know a rainbow?

1. Is the red color outside or inside?
2. The rainbow is a circle. What is the radius?
3. What is the length of the bow?
4. What is the width of the bow?
5. Is there a difference between light intensity between inside the bow and outside the bow?
6. At what time of the day do you usually see one?
7. Where would it be usually? North? East? South? West?
8. Is there a second bow in the sky?
9. If so, where is it?
10. Does that second one have red on the outside or on the inside?
11. What is the radius of the 2nd rainbow?
12. What is the width of the 2nd rainbow?
13. Are the rainbows polarized?
14. What is the direction of polarization?
15. Is the polarization strong or weak?


woot! If you have actually seen one, you should know the first 12. (I don't....)

Toad . I wouldn't stress about it if I was you. I am sure you have done no permanent damage, just simply forgot to take you medication. Take a double dose now and then continue on your normal daily doses and you will right as rain in a few days.

Nope... there are "lunar rainbows." Just much more rare and obviously much harder to see.

Generally you'll see them early fairly early in the morning or in the late afternoon, because the sun has to be behind you while you're looking towards the rainbow -- you won't see one at noon when the sun is directly overhead. The rain, of course, is falling in front of you, because what you're seeing essentially is the sun's rays reflecting off that rain falling in the distance.

Just saw the most amazing rainbow yesterday actually, after a friggin big scare... Tornado warnings in Calgary and a funnel cloud passed over my house, nearly forming twice (we were watching that thing nearly shatting ourselves), after the huge dump of rain and hail, the boldest (not faded at all) and clearest rainbow I've ever seen in my life appeared. Calm after the storm I suppose I didn't have my digital camera, but after a small google search I suppose this would be a good comparison

Well that depends on how you define "rainbow." I'd say you didn't see a rainbow.

Not "a rainbow" !! next you will be telling me I didn't see "leprechaun's" and "Doctor Who" isn't real.
