What angle do you have to be at to see a rainbow?
One doesn't have to be at any specific angle to see a rainbow. What is Dependent on seeing the rainbow is the location of the rain, and sun relative to you. The sun is always behind a rainbow when seen. So you would be in front of the rainbow, rain, and the sun. Also, No two people see the same rainbow unless a picture or video was taken of the rainbow.
Is a rainbow a bow or a circle?
A rainbow is a circle. What we see from almost any point on earth is a semicircle, or just a part of the rainbow. We can only see it from horizon to horizon, or just an arc of the whole rainbow. Occasionally we can see a full circle of a rainbow in the sky surrounding the sun, and sometimes multiple ones.
