Rainbows appear in the sky when there is bright sunlight and rain. Sunlight is known as visible or white light and is actually a mixture of colors. The sun's rays pass through millions of rai ndrops. A raindrop acts like a prism by reflecting, refracting and scattering the sunlight to form one large rainbow.
