There is a part of Mount Everest known as the Rainbow Valley. It is named not because there are rainbows there, but because of the brightly-colored jackets on the frozen corpses that litter the valley.

The next time you see a double rainbow, notice that the colors are inverted on the second rainbow. Double rainbows occur when sunlight is reflected twice off the back of a raindrop, which creates a faded second rainbow that has red at the bottom, and violet at the top.

When the sunlight hits water droplets that are below the horizon and you’re high enough above ground, you can see a full-circle rainbow. source source1

A fire rainbow is one of the rarest of all naturally-occurring atmospheric phenomena — it looks like a cloud made of rainbows.

This indoor rainbow isn’t created by sunlight – it’s made of thousands of colored threads. The piece, by artist Gabriel Dawe, was specifically designed for the Toledo Museum of Art’s Great Gallery.
