    Default Rainbow on other planets.



    Can we see Rainbow on Titan - Saturn's moon?
    If yes, What will be the Rainbow colours?
    If no, Why?

    Thanks & Regards,
    Prashant S Akerkar

    Hi Prashant,

    Rainbows are caused by a prismatic effect of sunlight dispersing through raindrops. Other frozen gas particles might refract causing some sort of prismatic effect. However, because it does not rain on Titan, water would be frozen, then a "rainbow" is impossible.

    Thanks.

    The liquid rain is in the form of Methane
    on Titan - Saturn planet moon.

    So no Rainbow?

    Thanks & Regards,

    I´m expecting for the new generation proves to the external solar sistem. Submarine (NASA) and drones (NASA Dragonfly). We will see a lot of amazing things in those worlds. Maybe the reimbows.

    Sunlight on Titan comes from the same source as here on Earth. The colours in a rainbow are determined by the sensitivities of our eyes. So the available colours will be the same as on Earth.

    Does liquid methane have a colour? If so, it will filter out all colours except its own colour.

    Titan's atmosphere contains a lot of photochemical smog, so the Sun would not be visible from the surface, and rainbows would therefore be impossible.
