(KSLA) -

In honor of 'Find a Rainbow Day,' on Sunday I decided to delve into the world of rainbows this week.

Rainbows are actually viewed when the sun is at your back (take note next time, you see one!) Light travels through a cloud droplet and reflects off the back of the droplet. The light then refracts, or bends,giving us the color spectrum we see with our eyes. 

A neat little fact of rainbows is, no one sees exactly the same rainbow. Everyone, is standing at a different position, or looking at a different spot. Thus, giving you your own unique and special rainbow.
