This question already has an answer here:

We see Rainbows many times, but we always see them Horizontally or from Sideways. Why can't we see it from under it?/From the point where it starts or ends(end points)? I also want to stress on that, I am asking on viewing part and not about the formation, reason, causes of a rainbow.
