In an 1802 poem My Heart Leaps Up, Wordsworth wrote, “My heart leaps up when I behold, A rainbow in the sky: So was it when my life began; So is it now I am a man; So be it when I shall grow old, Or let me die!” Photo #5 by Mark Robinson
The Calm After the Storm
The Calm After the Storm. Wikipedia explained a double rainbow as: “Secondary rainbows are caused by a double reflection of sunlight inside the raindrops, and appear at an angle of 50–53°. As a result of the second reflection, the colors of a secondary rainbow are inverted compared to the primary bow, with blue on the outside and red on the inside. The secondary rainbow is fainter than the primary because more light escapes from two reflections compared to one and because the rainbow itself is spread over a greater area of the sky. The dark area of unlit sky lying between the primary and secondary bows is called Alexander’s band, after Alexander of Aphrodisias who first described it.” Photo #6 by Toni Verdú Carbó
Double rainbow over the Merse, Scotland
Double rainbow over the Merse, Scotland. After the great flood and Noah’s famous Ark, came a rainbow that God said is His promise never to flood and destroy the entire earth again. But rainbows are so spectacular, that these multicolored arcs are woven into all kinds of legends, folklore, mythology and religions. Photo #7 by Neal Fowler
Double rainbow over Burning Man
Double rainbow over Burning Man. You know about the pot of gold that Irish folklore says is at the end of a rainbow, but in Navajo and Hindu cultures, rainbows are interpretations of creation. In Australian Aborigines myths, the Rainbow Serpent is the god and the creator of all. Did you see The Avengersfilm? The Bifröst Rainbow Bridge connects Earth with Asgard, the home of the Norse mythology gods. The Greek messenger Iris was said to travel on a rainbow. Everybody and their dog has seen rainbows in all kinds of marketing. The real thing is pretty incredible to behold. Photo #8 by John curley

Double rainbow over the London Eye
Double rainbow over the London Eye. Accuweather wrote, “Nature’s natural color spectrum always elicits the same pattern (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet) when light is refracted. While a primary rainbow is visible when light is reflected once off the back of a raindrop, a secondary and usually dimmer rainbow is spotted when light is reflected twice in a more complicated pattern. The colors of the second rainbow are inverted, with blue on the outside and red moved to the inside. The second bow appears dimmer or cloudier because much more light is released from two reflections, and both bows cover a larger portion of the sky. It is rare and unlikely, but three or even four rainbows can be seen on occasion, but only if they are reflected off of the earthly objects.” Photo #10 by Trey Ratcliff

Color of rainbow meanings: Red is the first or the topmost color in a rainbow and is the color of energy, enthusiasm and passion. Red is also the color with the longest wavelength, and it symbolizes vibrancy and security. Orange is the 2nd color from the top and symbolizes energy and wisdom. Yellow is the 3rd color from the top which is supposed to bring about a proper clarity of thought, wisdom, and improve decision-making skills. Green is the 4th and middle color in a rainbow, located in the center of the spectrum. Green symbolizes harmony, balance, growth, and good health. Blue is the 5th color and is known as the color of divinity; it helps to soothe and relax. Indigo is the 6th color (2nd from the bottom) and means infinity. It symbolizes wisdom, intuition, and self-mastery. This color is known to be the bridge between the finite and the infinite. Violet is the lowermost color in a rainbow; it is viewed as the completion and the beginning of energy vibration. Now flip those colors, red facing red, and that is a double rainbow. Photo #16 by Peggy2012CREATIVELENZ

After a severe storm a few miles north of the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument
After a severe storm a few miles north of the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. Is there a “meaning” to double rainbows? According to a Feng Shui site, “Double Rainbows are considered symbolic of transformations in your life. The material world is represented by the first rainbow while the second rainbow is the spiritual world. Seeing a single rainbow is fairly common so something we take for granted in the universe but when we see a double rainbow we stop and take time to admire the wonder of the universe.” Photo #20 by Nomadic Lass

Double rainbow on the 4th of July
The photographer wrote, “A double rainbow on the 4th of July? How awesome is this?” Recall that seeing the second rainbow phenomenon can be difficult? “We just got the edge of a storm that came through and I happened to go outside and saw this rainbow. Then when I was editing it, I noticed the double rainbow. The only way I could show the second rainbow was to lower the exposure which made me do a HDR process.” Photo #30 by Nicholas Erwin

Double Rainbow in stormy skies of Redmond Washington
The best time to see a rainbow is reportedly “in the early morning or late afternoon, when the sun is lower in the sky. When the sun is in a lower position, a higher bow can be seen.” When half of the sky is still dark with raining clouds, and the photographer is at a spot with clear sky in the direction of the sun, the most spectacular rainbows are visible and can be captured against the contrasting darkened background. Photo #37 by Joe McCarthy
Double and Supernumerary Rainbow over Hawaii
Double and Supernumerary Rainbow. The photographer noted, “I captured this from a helicopter over the southeastern side of Hawai’i, near Hilo. In addition to the faint double rainbow, there’s a supernumerary, which is the additional bands of color inside the violet band.” Wikipedia added, “A supernumerary rainbow—also known as a stacker rainbow—is an infrequent phenomenon, consisting of several faint rainbows on the inner side of the primary rainbow, and very rarely also outside the secondary rainbow. Supernumerary rainbows are slightly detached and have pastel color bands that do not fit the usual pattern.” Photo #38 by James Walsh

Rare twin and reflection rainbows at Sehestedt, Germany
Rare twin and reflection rainbows at Sehestedt, Germany. According to Wikipedia, “Unlike a double rainbow which consists of two separate and concentric rainbow arcs, the very rare twinned rainbow appears as two rainbow arcs that split from a single base. The colors in the second bow, rather than reversing as in a double rainbow, appear in the same order as the primary rainbow. It is sometimes even observed in combination with a double rainbow.” Then ScienceDaily added, “Sometimes, when the conditions are just right, we can observe extremely exotic rainbows, such as a twinned rainbow. Until now, no one has really known why such rainbows occur.” Photo #45 by Danapit
Reflection and double rainbows
In August 2012, research scientist Dr. Wojciech Jarosz at Disney Research, Zürich, discovered, “Sometimes two rain showers combine. When the two are composed of different sized raindrops, each set of raindrops produces slightly deformed rainbows, which combine to form the elusive twinned rainbow.” Left: Mirrored double rainbow in Naden Harbour, Haida Gwaii, British Columbia Canada.
