Physics teaches that rainbows are created when the sunlight reflects off of raindrops, breaking up the light into different wavelengths of color. This atmospheric phenomenon is most likely to occur immediately after a rain shower, when the sun is shining again, but condensation still lingers in the air.
The rare and lovely appearance of rainbows makes them incredibly magical for children and adults alike. Perhaps this magic first inspired the notion of a pot of at the end of the rainbow.
Dating back to old Europe, the legend of the pot of gold is claimed enthusiastically . They'll tell you that fairies put the gold there and then the leprechauns guard it.
Well, even if you aren't lucky enough to spot a rainbow this spring, you can still take a tour of some fantastic photos of these magical color beams at Rainbow Sitings.com.
