Perhaps there could be some explanation as to why yellow is at the central point of a rainbow. Thanks. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 09:05, 2 November 2016 (UTC)
Coincidence, really. Yellow shades just happen to lie roughly in the middle of the solar spectrum. Drabkikker (talk) 11:02, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

My request is to have the number of colors changed from seven to six. I believe as Issac Asimov stated, that Indigo is merely dark blue. It can be easily argued that there is a darker red, orange, yellow and so forth. The fact that Newton started with five colors, missing orange, and then jumped to seven leads me to speculate that when confronted with the missing orange, Newton, not to be out done, includes Indigo just for spite! Well I vote six colors, lets use our eyes to judge how many colors there are, and not believe, so easily, people that spend to much time sitting under coconut trees.
