Look! Up in the sky!

It’s a rainbow cloud! Oh, okay. I think it’s actually iridescence. This effect is a diffraction of light through water droplets in the cloud. Light is traveling through water droplets that are typically of a uniform size and the light is broken down into the color spectrum. That said, this was a pretty cool spectacle for someone who likes looking at clouds. That would be me.

  1. On a cloudy day you can see forever. Or something like that. This is quite unusual. I thought at first it was a break in the clouds through which the mountains shone. Very beautiful!
