    double rainbow

    There was a double rainbow just before sundown last night and I can only remember one other time I've seen two complete bows. Are they that rare everywhere or just where I've lived? Or maybe I don't spend enough time looking up.

    I can't recall ever having seen a good one. I once saw an amazing picture of a double rainbow. I'll see if I can find where I saved it... Ah the benefits of trawling photography boards.

    When there's a double rainbow, the colour arrangement is opposite relative to each other, right? IE, one goes ~ROYGBIV while the other goes ~VIBGYOR.

    I dunno if I have ever seen one. I think I might have but only one in my life. Don;t see them much down here though. At least not that I notice.

    I've seen about 3 or 4 double rainbows out here. I think it might depend on how good of a view you can get of the horizon. This spring I was driving into one and swear I saw a triple. I think it was changing just based on my location as I was driving down the highway.

    Yes, the order of colors in the outer rainbow is the opposite of the inner one. The outer one also is much less distinct.
