Weather of Arabia - An iridescent cloud appeared today, Wednesday 6/5/2024, in Chi Minh City, Vietnam, in a picturesque scene that attracts attention.

Iridescent clouds are a colorful optical phenomenon that occurs on clouds and generally appears next to the sun or moon. They resemble the colors that appear on soap bubbles or oil droplets above water. They are a type of optical atmospheric phenomenon. This common phenomenon has been observed in cumulus clouds, cirrocumulus, lenticular clouds, and ice clouds. They sometimes appear in the form of groups parallel to the edge of the clouds, and iridescent clouds have been seen on rare polar stratospheric clouds, which are also called nacreous clouds.

The colors are often light and may be very bright or mixed and sometimes resemble mother-of-pearl. When they appear close to the sun, it is difficult to see and identify the effect due to the brightness of the sun’s rays. You may overcome them by hiding the sun with your hand, hiding behind a tree or building, using sunglasses, or by seeing the reflection of the sky. On a spherical mirror or on a basin of water.
