Details:
Today I spotted some vivid iridescent clouds above the sun in Ranchester, Wyoming. The colors were more easily seen with sunglasses since the clouds were bright. When the plane flew through that part of the sky it was looking more like a circumzenithal arc. There were plenty of lenticular clouds around, and I guess its common for those to show iridescence when theyre in the right place. The best lenticular cloud I saw was after sunset when the nearly full moon became visible.
