Which state has the most rainbows? If you guessed either Hawaii or Florida, you are right! Both states have about the same number of rainbows.

You might wonder what makes a rainbow? When the sunshine shines through raindrops, the drops work like a tiny prism and reflect the beautiful colors. So in order to have a rainbow, you must have both water drops, such as rain, and sunshine. Sometimes you can see a rainbow in a mist of water such as a waterfall.

Occasionally, you might even see a double rainbow. The inner rainbow is always the brightest.

Some superstitious people believe that you can make a wish on a rainbow and it will come true. Maybe they are wishing they will find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!
