A rainbow is an optical and meteorological phenomenon that is caused by both reflection and refraction of light in water droplets in the Earth's atmosphere, resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky. It takes the form of a multicoloured arc. Rainbows caused by sunlight always appear in the section of sky directly opposite the sun.

To put it simply: white light is hitting the rain particles in the air which act as a prisim that creates the colors of the visible spectrum.',

It's been a while since Science Class. I think that's right.
