Rainbows/Visible Spectrum

Visible light, also known as white light, consists of a collection of colors. When the sunlight passes through the prism, the white light is separated into its component colors – red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet. The separation of visible light into its different colors is known as dispersion. This is the movement of the spectrum during one day in our lab. Why does it travel across the room? Is the sun or earth moving?
