Double Rainbow Over Blue Marsh Lake
Rainbows are caused by the reflection of light off the inside of water droplets in the atmosphere. Double rainbows, such as this one captured at Blue Marsh Lake, occur when the light wave is “re-reflected” as it exits the water drop at a different angle. The re-reflection causes the second rainbow to appear lighter, in reverse color order, and above the primary rainbow.
