CLEVELAND — After a wet Monday morning, residents across Northeast Ohio were greeted with colorful, eye-catching rainbows that took over the sky.

Viewers caught the rainbows in their full peak on Monday.

According to National Geographic, a rainbow is a multicolored arc made by light striking water droplets. Rainbows can be viewed around fog, by the sea, or waterfalls.

The most familiar type rainbow is produced when sunlight strikes raindrops in front of a viewer at a precise angle.

The colors of a rainbow appear in order of their wavelength, from longest to shortest, starting with red.
