Rainbow

Question

Guest

I am made of water and colors many,

but where can you find the end of me?

spoiler=]Nowhere. "I" is a rainbow, and although leprechauns have tried, there is no end to a rainbow. It is a complete circle of light, but half is covered by the earth. Circles have neither a beginning nor and end, so we only see part of the rainbow.

ya missed a bracket there at the begining of your spoiler.

and if anyone has see a rainbow from high up in an airplane, you'd see that they are truly a circle. it is very cool to see it from up high.

a way to see a small one is to use the mist setting on your hose sprayer and spray it high, away from the sun, and then you'll see a full circle.

Nice riddle...

However, for future posts, it's always better to name it something other than the answer... It helps keep the suspense going...

PS: You are probably smater than me so no disrespect here my friend

If we define the end of the rainbow as the place where "I" see it touch the earth surface from where "I'm" standing, I can probably locate that place very acurately.

But when I try to go there to touch it, "I" will not find it at the same place because the refracted light can only be seen from a certain distance of my eyes.

But my friends back where I was initially would swear that I was inside its base!!
