Why do rainbows always form in the same color sequence?

    This one is a bit tricky to explain, but I have attached a site that has diagrams. So, a rainbow displays the spectrum of colors we can see. Normally, we can’t see the colors the sun gives off and need another medium (water) to see these colors. Different angles allow us to see different colors. Example: we see the blue/purple in the inside of the arc because that color can be seen at a smaller angle.
