This is a rainbow with colours reversed, the spectre of which will be found a good resemblance of nature, especially when seen on a cloudy sky.
The colours of the spectres produced by these figures will not only be subject to a slight variation in different eyes, but also by the degree in which the plates are illuminated while being looked at.
All the spectres will appear life-sized if the observer is about sixteen feet from the surface against which they are seen. If much further, they will appear colossal.
