A double rainbow stretches over the sea in Roseto degli Abruzzi, Italy, Monday, April 21, 2014. Secondary rainbows have the colours inverted compared to those of the primary bow, at bottom, with blue on the outside and red on the inside. The secondary rainbow, caused by a double reflection in the raindrops, is fainter than the primary because more light escapes from two reflections compared to one and because the rainbow itself is spread over a greater area of the sky.
