Вопрос 1

 Two  people  never  see  the  same  rainbow.  Each  person  sees  a  different  one.  It happens because the raindrops are constantly moving so the rainbow is always changing too. Each time you see a rainbow it is unique and it will never be the same! In addition, everyone sees colours differently according to the light and how their eyes interpret it.

Вопрос 2

A rainbow is an optical phenomenon that is seen in the atmosphere. It appears in the sky when the sun’s light is reflected by the raindrops. A rainbow always appears  during  or  immediately  after  showers  when  the  sun  is  shining  and  the air contains raindrops. As a result, a spectrum of colours is seen in the sky. It takes the shape of a multicoloured arc.

Вопрос 3

 Many  cultures  see  the  rainbow  as  a  road,  a  connection  between  earth  and heaven (the place where God lives). Legends say that it goes below the earth at the  horizon  and  then  comes  back  up  again.  In this  way  it  makes  a  permanent link between what is above and below, between life and death. In some myths the rainbow is compared to a staircase connecting earth to heaven.

Вопрос 4

 We  all  believe  that  the  rainbow  is  arch-shaped.  The  funny  thing  is  that  it's actually a circle. The reason we don’t see the other half of the rainbow is because  we  cannot  see  below  the  horizon.  However,  the  higher  we  are  above the ground, the more of the rainbow’s circle we can see. That is why, from an airplane in flight, a rainbow will appear as a complete circle with the shadow of the airplane in the centre.

Вопрос 5

 In  many  cultures  there  is  a  belief  that  seeing  a  rainbow  is  good.  Legends  say that if you dig at the end of a rainbow, you'll find a pot of gold. Rainbows are also seen after a storm, showing that the weather is getting better, and there is hope  after  the  storm.  This  is  why  they  are  associated  with  rescue  and  good fortune. If people happen to get married on such a day, it is said that they will enjoy a very happy life together.

Вопрос 6

You can never reach the end of a rainbow. A rainbow is all light and water. It is always in front of you while your back is to the sun. As you move, the rainbow that your eye sees  moves  as  well and it will always ‘move away’ at the same speed that you are moving. No matter how hard you try, a rainbow will always be as far away from you as it was before you started to move towards it.

Вопрос 7

 To  see  a  rainbow  you  have  to  remember  some  points.  First,  you  should  be standing with the sun behind you. Secondly, the rain should be in front of you. The  most  impressive  rainbows  appear  when  half  of  the  sky  is  still  dark  with clouds and the other half is clear. The best time to see a rainbow is on a warm day in the early morning after sunrise or late afternoon before sunset. Rainbows are often seen near waterfalls and fountains.
