“Going off of unique frequencies, there are more colors in a rainbow than there are stars in the Universe or atoms in your body, but that goes far beyond what we can perceive. Your imperfect eye can (probably) only discern about a million distinct colors when you view a rainbow, or anything else, for that matter.”
How many colors are really in a rainbow

So going off of unique frequencies, there are more colors in a rainbow than there are stars in the Universe or atoms in your body, but that goes far beyond what we can perceive. Your imperfect eye can (probably) only discern about a million distinct colors when you view a rainbow, or anything else, for that matter.
But oh, what a spectacular view it is to be able to see all that our eyes permit.

It may just be a tiny fraction of the information actually encoded in the light of the Universe, but now that I’ve been asked, I’ve got to conclude that what we can see is pretty amazing for a simple trichromat!
