When light moves through glass, it slows down substantially, and if the glass is of a certain composition and angularity, that light is refracted into a familiar rainbow effect. As we drove with the kids to my parents house yesterday afternoon I noticed that the front windshield was refracting the light in just this manner and for a few minutes I enjoyed seeing the interior of the car awash in varying hues.
