They are formed from small water droplets of near uniform size. When the sun is properly positioned, mostly behind thick clouds, these thin clouds almost coherently diffract sunlight, and like a rainbow, different wavelengths are diffracted different amounts. Thus the rainbow effect.
They result from interference of light rays which emerge from water droplets in the same direction. The number of visible supernumerary arcs depends upon the size of the raindrops.
The secondary rainbow is about 10° further out from the anti-solar point than the primary bow, is about twice as wide. The light of the secondary bow is about one-tenth the intensity of that of the primary bow, given the same viewing conditions.
