According to Maltese Islands Weather, rainbows appear when sunlight passes through a raindrop causing it to be refracted, or bent.
Double rainbows, also known as ‘rainbow hats’, occur when a secondary rainbow forms outside of a primary rainbow.
As light passes through a raindrop, it is refracted at different angles, displaying a bright spectrum of colours from red to violet – a rainbow.
