Around the Rainbow Rather Than Over the Rainbow

When we view a rainbow in the sky, with our feet planted firmly on the ground, we are only seeing the upper half of the rainbow. Every rainbow is really a circle. Due to being up front and having an expansive window from which to view all, pilots have seen full-circle rainbows. Passengers on planes have windows that are far too small to get a look at a full-circle rainbow. If you want to see a bit more than just the top half of a rainbow, the sun will help you. The lower the sun is in the sky, the higher the top of the rainbow will be and more of that rainbow you will see. Even if you happen to be on top of one of the world's highest mountains, you just might see more of full-circle rainbow, but alas, not the entire circle. I suppose with my fear of heights, I will just have to settle with seeing the upper half of a rainbow. Works for me.
