Over the rainbow can be understood as something literally right over the rainbow or right over the top of the rainbow. For example, “The clouds are over the rainbow.” Beyond the rainbow means something is ahead of the rainbow, or farther past the rainbow. For example, “Beyond the rainbow is a field full of flowers.”
Over and beyond are two different words. Over is a word used to mean something is passing directly on top of another object. Beyond is a word used to mean something is farther past another object, not necessarily directly over it. Beyond implies a farther distance or something farther ahead.
@Muuluzi@Caroline_0461 Thank both of you very much for your informative answers. After reading your replies, I realized I had a very wrong idea of what "over" is. When I say "jump over a fence", I always thought of the place or the side opposite the fence where you are after jumping over the fence,which is beyond the fence. So for me, over the fence and beyond the fence meant the same until both of you let me know that they don't. Thanks again for both of you!
