Because of their colorful and unique display, rainbows have generated countless legends and myths throughout history. Among the most popular is the Irish folklore that leprechauns store their pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. But the truth is, rainbows can be seen only if you are in the right place at the right time.

If you’ve ever seen one, consider yourself lucky. For a rainbow to appear, the conditions must be just right.

Rainbows can be seen when light passes through raindrops, says Kristin Calhoun, a research scientist at the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the scientific agency focusing in part on the conditions of weather.

When a person sees a rainbow, it’s really an optical illusion created by the refraction and reflection of light. An optical illusion is when you see something that appears to be something other than what is really there.

When sunlight passes through raindrops, the light bends, or refracts, as it enters the droplet, and then reflects off the inside of the raindrop. This happens because the water is more dense than the air that surrounds it. As it exits the droplet, the light separates into wavelengths. Visible light is made up of various wavelengths, and each wavelength appears as a different color: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. Red light, for example, bends at a different angle than violet light.

This is why “the person on the ground sees each color at a different location,” Calhoun says, and why rainbows look like a bow or an arc. Sometimes, however, rainbows can actually form an entire circle that you can see in a plane with the right conditions.

Paraglider walks away unscathed after surprise dust devil chews him up and spits him out

Paraglider walks away unscathed after surprise dust devil chews him up and spits him out Video emerges of the harrowing moment an experienced paraglider is torn through the air by a surprise dust devil in northern New South Wales. The man, who was visiting from overseas, was one of 40 paragliding pilots setting up to take off for a cross-country flight from a popular launch spot on Mount Borah in Manilla. A dust devil — a small whirlwind or air vortex over land — rapidly formed and raced across the launch area, catching the paraglider and flinging him into the air.

How is a rainbow formed ? Update Cancel. aHd by Quora for Business. This happens EVERYWHERE when there is rain! There is never "one" rainbow - you just need to be in a specific place for the light to hit your eyes.

Because rainbows are created by light via raindrops, the best time to catch a rainbow is when it’s sunny and raining. “There is an even better chance when the sun is at a lower angle, so early or later in the day,” Calhoun says.

If you’re trying to spot one, the key is to face the rain and have your back to the sun.

With the conditions just right, Hawaii gets lots of rainbows. “Small showers and storms often form in late afternoon due to the combined effects of topography and daytime heating of the land,” Calhoun says. “These types [of] showers often produce heavy rain, but remain isolated over the center of the island.”

Because rainbows are optical illusions, they’re not located at a specific distance. The location is relative to the person. That means there’s no chance you’ll ever find that pot of gold.

ASUS rethinks gaming laptop design with its inventive new ROG Mothership.
ASUS' bonkers new ROG Mothership gaming laptop features a radical approach to cramming plenty of powerful hardware into a portable system. This 17-inch machine is kind of like a cross between an all-in-one desktop and a full-blown gaming laptop: place it vertically on a flat surface, and a kickstand behind the screen pops out to prop up the display. The company says this helps with heat dissipation, and negates the need for a liquid cooling system for its powerful internals.
