The Anti-Rainbow!

by ryan

A little while ago we had a training with Richard Brown about the anti-rainbow (a band of the reverse colors of the usual ROY G. BIV). The main colors on an anti-rainbow are cyan, blue yellow, and magenta which are the opposites of blue, red, and green. Think of it as a blending of the colors that are shadows on the colored shadow wall. On the day of the awards dinner, while half the group was on the field trip, we took advantage of an empty museum and snapped some photos that capture the reflection of a stool in an area that displays the white light from a combination of various rainbows shining down from the polarizing lenses on the Exploratorium windows.
