Good morning from 70.52N 139.58W. We traveled through scattered ice this morning.
A fogbow is like a rainbow in that it is caused by sunlight shining onto water droplets. Because the water droplets that cause fog are very small, they can't refract the light into a spectrum of colors. Thus, the fogbow has little or no color.
Today is the first sunny morning since we left Cambridge Bay.
Question: Do you know an easy way to remember the colors of the rainbow (in order)?
