Manmade Double Rainbows

A rainbow is formed when sunlight passes through droplets of water like a prism which breaks the light into seven colors. If your back is to the sun and you are looking at 40-degree angle above the ground at a mist, you’ll see one or more rainbows.

I made these manmade double rainbows while misting roses one July morning. Apparently, I had that perfect 40-degree angle between the sun and the ground and I was able to make these manmade double rainbows with a garden hose. These were partial spectrum rainbows, meaning all seven colors were not apparently visible.
