Circumhorizon arc or 'rainbow clouds' can be observed when the sun rises high in the sky, the rays of the sun when it passes through high-altitude clouds composed of ice crystals in the form of hexagons. The sunlight is refracted in these crystals in a bizarre way, and as a result, we see “fire rainbow”. This phenomenon is not local, it can extend over several hundred square miles.

Great photo of a Fire Rainbow. It forms when the sun is high, light passes through cirrus clouds with high ice crystal content forming the rainbow.

The phenomenon, called a Sundog, happens when ice crystals appear in clouds and refract the sun's rays. Taken in Heyworth, Illinois, US.

Noctilucent clouds are crystals of ice, hanging around 50 miles high in the atmosphere, that catch the light of the sun long after it has set on the horizon

Fire rainbows are the rarest of all naturally occurring atmospheric phenomena. For a fire rainbow to occur, cirrus clouds must be 20,000 feet in the air with the precise amount of ice crystals, and the sun must hit the clouds at 58 degrees.

Circumhorizon arc, caused by a unique combination of the sun's position and the shape of ice crystals in the air.

Noctilucent clouds are crystals of ice hanging around 80 kilometres high in the atmosphere that catch the light of the sun long after it has set on the horizon. Natural nacreous clouds occur at altitudes of 20-25 kilometres. The cloud in this image was formed from the exhaust of a missile launched from a distant firing range.

Photographer Matt Molloy has began experimenting with time-lapse sequences by taking hundreds of images as the sun set and the clouds moved through the sky.

"Smeared skies, Lake Ontario, Canada" It’s one of a series by photographer Matt Molloy. His “timestack” technique uses timelapse video footage to create a single still where the clouds look like brushstrokes.
