Girl Under Double-rainbow, April 23, 2013 © mbee

A rainbow is an optical and meteorological phenomenon that is caused by reflection of light in water droplets in the Earth’s atmosphere, resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky. It takes the form of a multicoloured arc.

In a double rainbow, a second arc is seen outside the primary arc, and has the order of its colours reversed, red facing toward the other one, in both rainbows. This second rainbow is caused by light reflecting twice inside water droplets. (

JAG ÄLSKAR REGNBÅGAR! utan underdrift. jag vet inte riktigt varför, men finner dom otroligt fascinerande. det är bara en sån häftig känsla att stå och blicka upp mot en! och igår när det som sagt var världens konstigaste väder i min stad så fick jag chansen att betrakta inte bara en utan 2 dubbelregnbågar. dubbel lycka! och jag vet att man brukar prata om att man ska kunna finna en skatt vid regnbågens slut, men för mig är regnbågen i sig skatt nog.


// I just love rainbows. I think they are so fascinating and cool and beautiful and…well I actually don’t know by but every time I get to see one I just feel so lucky to get that chance! And yesterday, when the weather was so strange and weird I got the oppertunity to view not only one, but 2 of them and not even single one’s but doubles. Crazy but true! //
