While rainbows are often known to bring you a pot of gold, one resident is claiming it's actually a "sign of hope." Captured in a video, a breathtaking double rainbow in Ontario can be spotted lighting up the sky of Bloomingdale on April 3. This colourful arch is acting as a sign of relief for locals in the areas.
In a video posted by The Weather Network, a double rainbow can be seen stretching across the entire sky.
The resident who is filming the amazing sight is quick to call out the rainbows double meaning, "never seen anything like this, a double rainbow. This is a full rainbow of hope."
The stunning arch could be seen illuminating Ontario's skyline on April 3, otherwise known as "National Find A Rainbow Day." Yup, someone actually found a rare rainbow on the day that you're supposed to go looking for them.
Now, depending on how superstitious you are, the meteorological phenomenon might appear as a sign that everything is going to be alright.
In eastern cultures, the double rainbow is considered to be a symbol of transformation and a sign of good fortune.
However, with most magical things in life, there is a scientific explanation for the rainbow, and it's still pretty impressive.
According to The Weather Channel, the grand event is the result of two optical effects occurring at the same time.
"During a particularly lucky scenario, two rainbows will form at the same time. The first and brighter rainbow is called the primary rainbow," experts explained.
"The second and fainter rainbow is called the secondary rainbow," the description continues.
"It occurs when refracted light does not escape the raindrop after being reflected the first time. Instead, the refracted light reflects off the raindrop's surface a second time as well, producing a secondary rainbow with its colors reversed compared to the primary rainbow."
If you're a skeptic, the rainbow might not be a sign of hope, but it is something that is beautiful to look at.
