Chasing rainbows. National Find a Rainbow Day
Happy National Find a Rainbow Day! These colorful natural marvels appear when light strikes water droplets, creating a natural prism effect. So, areas that have plenty of sunshine and showers are a good place to start your search.
And where better to look than Hawaii, said to be the rainbow capital of the world? At Pu'uhonua o Hōnaunau National Historical Park on the Big Island, a combination of mountains, clear air, and trade winds bringing rain showers helps create the perfect conditions for rainbow sightings.
