I awoke to what looked like a painting in the sky this morning – beautiful nacreous clouds.  They’re also called rainbow or mother of pearl clouds and occur when ice crystals form high in the stratosphere.  The ice acts as a prism when the sun hits it.  The result is breathtaking clouds right outside my window.
