How many colors are in a rainbow?

Rainbows

Rainbows are one of Mother Nature's most beautiful sights. The colorful phenomenon is formed when sunlight and raindrops interact, forming a concentric arc of brightly colored bands.
Rainbows form when rain is falling in one part of the sky and the sun is shining in another. For the rainbow to be seen, the observer must be behind the sun and facing the falling rain.
