Weather School: What Makes a Rainbow?

Sorry, this video is no longer available

Weather School is our new Sunday Segment where kids can ask questions about the weather.

Tonight’s question is from Bella Hines, a first grader at Ellen Hopkins Elementary.

She wants to know what makes a rainbow.

Great question, Bella!

White light comes from the sun and goes through raindrops.

The light gets refracted and down into the basic colors: red, orange, green, blue and violet.

Thanks Bella for the question!
