APOD: A Rainbow Pileus Cloud over Zimbabwe (2014 Feb 19) Image Credit & Copyright: Peter Lowenstein http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140219.html Explanation: Yes, but how many dark clouds have a multicolored lining? Pictured, behind this darker cloud, is a pileus iridescent cloud, a group of water droplets that have a uniformly similar size and so together diffract different colors of sunlight by different amounts. The above image was taken just before sunset when it was noticed by chance by a photographer in Murambi East, near Odzi Valley and the Mtanda Range of Zimbabwe. Also captured were unusual cloud ripples above the pileus cloud. The formation of a rare pileus cloud capping a common cumulus cloud is an indication that the lower cloud is expanding upward and might well develop into a storm. In this case, however, only a few minutes after the colorful cloud was noticed, it disappeared. Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=140219 #APOD
