Did you Know? Rainbows are made when light shines through water. When the sun shines through the rain, light is bent and reflected making all the amazing colors of the rainbow! Rainbows have no end! Even though they look like an arch to us, rainbows are actually full circles. You can make your on rainbow!! You need a sunny day, and a water hose. Stand facing away from the sun, so the sun is shining on your back. Hold your garden hose (works better if you have a big spray nozzle on it) and spray in an arch into the air.
