I saw this colorful cloud from the center of my city in Brazil around noon. The cloud was very bright and with very well defined colors similar to a beautiful rainbow.
Amazing.

I guess this is a fragment of the circumhorizontal arc, which is an ice crystal halo type and not a real iridescent cloud, since it appears in a cirrus cloud type, and has the typical rainbow-sequenced spectral colours.

pphv,

I understood. Thanks for the correction. It was the first time I saw this kind of phenomenon, so I was a little unsure of what it really would be.
