Nacreous clouds and Iridescence [Feb. 9th, 2011|08:06 am]
susan smitten

Last year, I posted a few pictures of this dazzling phenomenon I observed in the sky.

A year later, thanks to the Collins Weather Wild Guide, I have learned that what I saw were nacreous clouds, a form of iridescence.

Something I already knew: Nacreous clouds are rare, and I was very lucky to observe them.

I would like to either link to this from my geographile blog, or copy this there and call it a guest post from you, if you're willing. (Or if you'd prefer, to borrow your photo with credit and write my own post.)

By all means! You can copy it word for word, or modify it however you like. You have my full permission. :-)

You disappoint me! I thought you'd say they were UFOs! :)
