      a beautiful gift from mother nature. (A rainbow) arises through the conjunction of various factors, but there is nothing about it that can be grasped. Likewise, thoughts that arise in the mind have no tangible existence or intrinsic solidity' Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

      What does a rainbow look like from an airplane, up in the clouds! Here it is! #SCIENCE RESEARCH #DdO:) - - SKY LIGHTS, with other photos of the sun, moon, sunrise, sunset. BUT: What LOOKS like a rainbow in some OTHER photos- not this one with patchwork quilt farm land giving depth perception to the scene- is an optical illusion- Not real, because the angle between the SUN > DROPLET > VIEWER must stay a constant 42 degrees. Here's Why: Rainbows form when sunlight hits water droplets in atmosphere that split sunlight into its constituent colours-- & reflects them at an angle of about 42 degrees, causing a rainbow to appear. So it's impossible to see a rainbow in front of you AND then fly OVER it-- As the angles change, the rainbow disappears or is seen in a different place. EXPLANATION of wrong rainbow photos from planes: The plastic in airplane windows have a property called birefringence that splits light into 2 distinct rays, which disperse colors. As light emerges from the window, the 2 rays of light interfere with each other & create color bands ASSUMED wrongly to be a rainbow outside- esp if the camera has a polarizing filter.
