Nacre us or Iridescent Clouds
« on: February 02, 2016, 03:28:22 PM »
Did anyone see the iridescent or nacreous clouds this morning over Edinburgh. They could have been noctilucent but I'm not sure as they were very colourful. They were incredibly beautiful with pearlescent colours of pinks, reds and yellows. Never seen anything like it. Tried to rake some photos with the mobile but they didn't turn out great. Least I got to see an incredible astronomical sight, been far too long!
