    Pocahontas painted with all the colors of the wind but that's probably because trying to paint with all the colors of a rainbow is just way too complicated. Scientists have actually factored that there are twelve different types of rainbows RB-1 to RB-12 (we know, their names aren't exactly as colorful). These guys are determined by everything from how fat the droplets are that created them, to how the sun was angled at the time. We don't really care what category it falls into, just so long as there is gold at the end!
