Perfect Rainbow!

I took these snapshots near the newly built dorms at George Mason University's Fairfax Campus. On closely observing these, one can see the second lighter rainbow just above the first. Honestly speaking, this is the first time ever that I saw such a perfect beauty of nature! Anyways, I wouldn't have experienced it if there were no thunderstorm warning, which made us to leave earlier..

Very Beautiful indeed!
I remember how excited I was when I had witness that phenomenon, because I had learnt tht in school then.
These rainbows are called primary and secondary rainbows.
If you notice more carefully, the secondary rainbow(the lighter one) is formed in a reversed way-red as lower band while the primary has red on the upper band.
Fascinating!! isn't it?
