The rare fire rainbow was spotted at the River Spey in Moray, Scotland

A circumhorizontal arc is an ice-halo formed by the refraction of sun- or moonlight in plate-shaped ice crystals suspended in the atmosphere, typically in cirrus or cirrostratus clouds. As with all halos, it can be caused by the Sun as well as the Moon. The misleading term "fire rainbow" is sometimes used to describe this phenomenon, although it is neither a rainbow, nor related in any way to fire.

The circumhorizon arc or rainbow clouds. This amazingly beautiful natural phenomenon 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 bizarre way, and as a result, we see “fire rainbow”. This phenomenon is not local, it can extend over several hundred square miles

Crepuscular Rays - One of the most spectacular views we get here on earth is the light show of crepuscular rays. These are sun rays or sunlight that has been scattered by particles in the atmosphere. Most often it is water, dust or smoke. Light is not visible so it takes some form of contaminant in the air to produce the ray effect.

Behold, one of the rare rainbow phenomenons - the rainbow cloud!
