Close-up of the rainbow of colours on the surface of a soap bubble. The colours are due to the varying thickness of the liquid forming the bubble. Light reflecting from the inner and outer edges of the bubble wall reflects and interferes with itself, resulting in the destructive interference of some wavelengths (colours) and the constructive interference of others. The distance between the inner and outer wall of the soap film determines which wavelengths are enhanced.
