No, but one may see a more complete or intense rainbow. It shape and angular relationship to them will be exactly the same. This is true because the rainbow is not a physical thing that can be looked at from different angles or perspectives. It very definitely requires an observer to exist. It is a creation of the observer´s mind, is not a physical object: Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! As at Earth the sun´s rays are essentially parallel (0.5 or less degrees of angular divergence) any one water drop sphere will send to your eye only one color. Lets assume, just to be clear, that the drop of the illustration´s blue ray is entering your eye. (Its red ray is passing below your head. It might even strike the ground a mile in front of where you stand.) Another drop higher above it can send its red ray to your eye. I.e. coming to your eye are rays at 40 & 42 degree rays. You assume, correctly, that the 42 degree or red ray is from a higher source than the blue 40 degree ray. Thus you perceive the red color as coming from an arch larger than the blue color arc you perceive. Every observer of every rainbow always sees the red arc 2 degree wider, higher, etc. than the blue arc – Thus the shape of all rainbows for all observers who see one is identical, but again, one may see only a small part of the rainbow arc if there are not water drops where they need to be for him. You can make a quite nice rainbow with fine mist garden hose, if you know how.* Also if you know where to look occasionally you can see the much weaker larger rainbow. It has the red arc inside the blue arc. I have seen it a dozen of so times. *Even make the full 360 degree circle, but you will need help. I.e. someone else makes the mist for you in front you, when you are say looking out from a second story porch but sun must be coming from your back side. (House can not be blocking the sun.) ------------------ This is same story for the 22 degree halo sometimes seen around the moon, but it is a little more interesting in its physic. If you shine a beam of monochromatic light thru a prism its direction of travel will change. Exactly how much depends upon the angle the incident ray strikes the first surface of the prism. If your “prism” were a hexagonal ice crystal, as your twist the crystal you will find that the beam is always bent by at least 22 degrees. Thus in addition to the moon light going directly to your eyes, a part of the sky say 23 degrees from the direct line of sight with ice crystals can bend a little moonlight back, thru 23 degrees into your eye. That at 22 degrees can too, but that at 19 degrees cannot. I.e. the inter edge of the moon´s halo is quite sharp but the outer edge does not really exist – the halo light bent thru 25 degrees is just much weaker, etc.
