Nice shot Alex.I think that anyone can see the rainbow many times in his life as its depend on the conditions of the weather.

Are you home-schooled? How do you manage to be online all the time?

Not true... maybe if you are a hermit. Today driving from Brainerd, MN to my home in Cass Lake (only about 90 miles) I saw three DIFFERENT rainbows. I know I saw rainbows on atleast 15 different days up in Minnesota this summer alone.

I guess the person who started this thread is banned, but a good majority of the rainbows this last spring/summer where doubles. Doesn't it have something to do with the height of the sun in the sky? Seems like a few hours before or at sunset was the time to see them.

The rainbow is going to be basically opposite the sun, not getting into the nitty gritty. For that reason, you see them when the rain is to your east around sunset, or the rain is to your west around sunrise. By the same token, if you spray a hose on a misty setting at your feet around noon, you'll see a rainbow near the ground.
