Yup, I made it to the end of the rainbow...and no, there was no gold.

Seriously, this was super cool. It was a HUGE rainbow that we had been watching on our drive for several minutes. We actually caught up to the end...amazing!

The funny thing here is the large rainbow was pointing to Wild Horse Creek, sight of a 1880’s gold rush. laugh

That is a double rainbow also. I have chased down the end of the rainbow a few times in my life.

Fun story. The first time I remember finding the end of the rainbow in my life happened to be when we were looking at a dog on a website called careforanimals.org. We happened to be checking out a dog we had found there and saw the rainbow, we were driving to the house and noticed it looked like the rainbow ended really close to where we were so we decided to chase it down before finishing the drive to the house. Well we found it, it ended in a puddle which also had a rainbow in it. We look at the address we are supposed to find and noticed we were already at the house. This happened to be the dog we adopted for my aunt and she was an amazing companion for my aunt for about 15 years of her life.

Wut? You can’t go to the end of a rainbow as there is no such thing.

We are in serious need of some basic atmospheric physics in this thread...

One can create a small rainbow using a garden hose and reach and touch the end of it.

Not all rainbows are atmospheric, some are created from road mist and or low hanging mist such as in the case of the OP. Note how shallow it is compared to the atmospheric on in the second set of pics. coffee

You cannot “touch” the end of a rainbow regardless of how it is formed. It does not exist in a fixed location and is entirely dependent on the position of the observer. It is impossible to approach it whether it is produced by rain or a garden hose because “it” is not “there”.

If it were a thing and was located in a fixed location then two people would see the same rainbow, which never happens. No two people ever see the same rainbow in the same location.

The three people in my car saw it...and we clearly got closer to it as we drove.
