Magic Rainbow Clouds

Whilst packing the kids into the car for the school run this morning my middle son let out an almighty screech of excitement and pointed up at the sky. Expecting the usual moon/bird/airplane/helicopter I was stunned to look up and see these beautiful rainbow clouds...




These camera phone photos don't do them any justice, they were absolutely stunning!! I have never seen anything like this before and when we got back home I looked them up on the internet, of course there was a scientific explanation involving crystals and high winds, but we are sticking with calling them "magic rainbow clouds" :-)
