In the summer after rain we can sometimes see a rainbow in the sky. We can see it only when sun is behind us and low over the horizon, It is laways in the part of the sky that is opposite the sun. A rainbow is very pretty. As the sun shines through the raindrops,the sunlight breaks up into many colours: violet,blue,green,yellow,orange and red. When there are no more raindrops the rainbow disappears.
People have always liked to see a rainbow in the sky. They like to sing songs and tell stories about ranbows. Somewhere over the Rainbow was a very popular song from a children’s film. In myths a rainbow can be a bridge so the gods can come down to earth. And in one fairy tale there is a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Nobody has ever found it.
