rainbow Nacreous Clouds - Iceland - Polar stratospheric clouds or PSCs, also known as nacreous clouds (from nacre, or mother of pearl, due to its iridescence), are clouds in the winter polar stratosphere at altitudes of 15,000–25,000 meters. They are best observed during civil twilight when the sun is between 1 and 6 degrees below the horizon. They are implicated in the formation of ozone holes.

Artist’s impression of the deep blue planet HD 189733b | ESA/Hubble: This illustration shows HD 189733b, a huge gas giant that orbits very close to its host star HD 189733. Astronomers have been able to deduce that HD 189733b is a deep, azure blue — reminiscent of Earth's color as seen from space. However, the planet's atmosphere is scorching with a temperature of over 1000 degrees Celsius, and it rains glass, sideways, in howling 7000 km/hr winds. #Illustraton #Astronomy #HD189733b Planets, True Colors, Glasses, Stars, Cobalt Blue, Illustration, Earth, Astronomy, Deep Blue

Asperatus Clouds Over New Zealand by Witta Priester, www.flickr.com/... apod.nasa: Although their cause is presently unknown, such unusual atmospheric structures, do not appear to be harbingers of meteorological doom. Known as Undulatus asperatus clouds, they can be stunning in appearance, unusual in occurrence, are relatively unstudied, and may even be a new type of cloud.
