After Noah left the ark, God told Noah that He would send a rainbow to remind everyone that he would never again destroy the earth with water.

However, is it possible to not have a rainbow when it is raining and the sunlight is right? According to the passage, it rained for 40 days/nights, then there was no rain. That's interesting- 150 days (or maybe even 9 months) with no rain, with all that water and condensation al over the world- even if locally? And if it did rain after those 40 days (because of a different interpretation), but while Noah was still on the boat for about 9 months after the 40-day rains, couldn't it make a rainbow?

The rainbow is a natural occurrence, not supernatural.
