As I was out for a walk on a beautiful sunny afternoon yesterday, I noticed this beauty in the sky.

It got me wondering though, if it was indeed a rainbow?

There was no rain. Nothing but sunny skies.

I did a bit of research via my friend google, and I'm thinking it might have actually been a cloud iridescence or irisation. 

Apparently a cloud iridescence is a colourful optical phenomenon that occurs in a cloud and it appears in the general proximity of the sun or moon. 

Who knew??

Did you see it too? Send me a photo if you happened to grab one.
