One of the wonders of living in Hawaii: rainbows abound.

Rainbows span a continuous spectrum of colors. Rainbows can be caused by many forms of airborne water, including rain, mist, spray, and airborne dew.

In a primary rainbow, the arc shows red on the outer part and violet on the inner side. This rainbow is caused by light being refracted when entering a droplet of water, then reflected inside on the back of the droplet and refracted again when leaving it.

In a double rainbow, a second arc is seen outside the primary arc, and has the order of its colors reversed, with red on the inner side of the arc.

Hawaiian Rainbows = Pure Magic!
