From the Astronomy Picture of the Day

Image


"Pictured, behind this darker cloud, is a pileus iridescent cloud, a group of water droplets that have a uniformly similar size and so together diffract different colors of sunlight by different amounts. The above image was taken just after the picturesque sight was noticed by chance by a photographer in Ethiopia."

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Cool! Its hard to believe its not fake. I would love to see it live.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Very cool. It immediately reminded me of Lenticular Cap Clouds as seen in the link below.

http://weathervortex.com/blog/category/c......-clouds/


From Wiki:
Lenticular clouds (Altocumulus lenticularis) are stationary lens-shaped clouds that form at high altitudes, normally aligned perpendicular to the wind direction. Lenticular clouds can be separated into altocumulus standing lenticularis (ACSL), stratocumulus standing lenticular (SCSL), and cirrocumulus standing lenticular (CCSL). Due to their shape, they are often mistaken for Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs).
