U.K. Treated to Rare, Pastel-Colored Nacreous Clouds After Storm

Image: james_zero1

This past week in Scotland, Ireland and northern England, a rare natural phenomena colored the clouds with spectacular pastel rainbows, pleasing photographers and nature lovers alike. SOme lucky U.K. observers were treated to a positively beautiful bonus in the face of any negatives ushered in by Storm Henry. When the storm brought in a cold front, that air allowed for the formation of nacreous clouds. 

Once the sun set, parts of U.K. could see the prismatic show visible only at that time, when ice crystals are carried upon jets of stratospheric air.

See many more stunning captures like the ones shown here in this article.
