A double rainbow is not unusual but is often too faint to be noticed.

A rainbow is caused by sunlight refracting and reflecting in water droplets. If the light is reflected twice in the droplets, there will be a second rainbow outside the first. It will be fainter and the order of the colors will be reversed.

Whenever you see a rainbow, look carefully to see if there is a second one right above it.
