There's not much else to say that the subject doesn't cover.  :)

Fantastic rainbow.
Which begs the question.
Physicsicists say that rainbows don't exist as such, and that everyone sees their own rainbow.
Well how can you video it if that's the case.
And does everyone looking at the video see the same rainbow or do we all still see a different rainbow ?
Does the video process actually fix the rainbow to the one spot.
So could a person looking at a rainbow through a video camera, actually follow a rainbow to it's end and get a pot of gold ?

There's a doctorate in it for someone, I'm sure :-)
(not to mention a pot of gold)

Them physicists are jest plumb crazy !

@CA - I experienced something related to where/how a rainbow exists.  This happened about a year ago maybe.  I was on my way home and approaching a town that I was going to drive passed.  There was a rainbow (that appeared to be) coming out of the sky right into the middle of the town.  I got excited because I had the thought I was going to drive right underneath it.  But no dice.  As I got closer to the town, and ultimately right along side it, the rainbow kept its distance from me.  It went right along with me and I never got any closer to it.  :(

But that brings a thought to mind.  If the camera was recording the rainbow that it was "seeing", and I was slinging at the one I was seeing, its position isn't where I thought it was.  So that's why I kept missing.   ;D


@TOMBELAINE - Thanks!  You worded that very nicely.
