Image of a rainbow

Rainbow. It is an arc of concentric bands of light in the colours of the spectrum. It is seen in the sky when the Sun is behind the observer and raindrops are in front. The separation of the colours is caused by the reflection and refraction of the sunlight in the water drops. The larger the drops, the brighter are the colours. A faint secondary rainbow is sometimes visible above the primary one. In the primary rainbow the Sun's rays experience only one reflection in the water drops, whereas the secondary rainbow is caused by those rays which undergo two reflections. This also causes the reverse order of the colours in the two rainbows

Artwork of Phobos spacecraft in orbit around Mars

Artist's impression of the Soviet Phobos spacecraft in orbit around Mars in early 1988, prior to its final approach to Phobos (upper right), the larger of the two small Martian moons. The spacecraft was launched in July 1988. It is scheduled to spend 120 days orbiting Mars, making observations of the planet's atmosphere & magnetosphere & taking high-resolution images of the surface. It will then approach Phobos, descending to within 50 metres of the moon's surface before releasing two lander probes. The view of Mars in this picture shows the three Tharsis volcanos, with the giant Olympus Mons volcano beyond them
