Iridescent Clouds occur near the sun.

They are caused by tiny water droplets
in the clouds, causing the light to be diffracted.
This then creates the stunning rainbow effect.

These types of clouds are not commonly seen, let alone Photographed.
I was lucky enough to have been outside at home photographing
the clouds at exactly the right time as they passed near the sun.
