But actually it is a mixture of all the colors. When sunlight strikes the beveled edge of a mirror, or the edge of a glass prism — or even the surface of a soap bubble — we can see that this is true. Because what happens then is, the whito light is broken up into different wave lengths. These wave lengths are seen by our eyes as red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet. They form a band of parallel stripes, each color grading into the next to it. This band is called a spectrum. And that's what a rainbow is - a huge curved spectrum. It is caused by the breaking up and dispersing of sunlight. Raindrops act as the prisms which do it. The sunlight enters the raindrop and is broken up. The colors are then reflected back in a circle of colored bands. We don't see the lower half of the circle because the horizon cuts it off. We can only see a rainbow under certain conditions. There must be a shower when rain is falling and the sun shining at the same time, but on opposite sides of the observer. Also, the sun, the eye of the observer, and the center of the arc must all be in a straight line. If the sun is more than 42 degrees above the horizon, no rainbow is visible. That's why rainbows can be seen only in the early morning or late afternoon. * * * FUN TIME The Chuckle BoxSally: That Jimmy Brown makes me tired. Mary: No wonder.
