Double Rainbow "What Does This Mean?"
Youtuber Paul "Bear" Vasquez went viral on Youtube back in 2010 when he posted a video of a double rainbow he spotted from his front yard just outside Yosemite National Park.
"Double rainbow!! What does this mean!!?," was his ecstatic reaction in the video.
Double rainbows can occur after a period of heavy rain. The second fainter rainbow forms when light is reflected in two directions off the water, according to National World.
"Although double rainbows are rarer than single rainbows, they are more common than people believe - because the second rainbow is often fainter they are harder to spot," Steven Ross writes for National World about the double rainbow in the United Kingdom.
