Sometimes we see two rainbows at once. The rainbow we normally see is called the primary rainbow and is produced by one internal reflection of light withing the raindrop.
However, if the sunlight is bright enough we will see a secondary rainbow which comes from two internal reflections of light within the raindrop. The colors seen in secondary rainbows are in reverse order.
