Mother of pearl clouds

I had to pull up my cell phone while driving this morning to picture this, Mother of pearl clouds – or Nacreous as some call it is a seldom phenomena. I wish I had a better camera, my cellphone is not suited for this but you get the picture, and you should do a image search on Google on it. These clouds were in about 20 to 25 kilometers up, they occur by strong westerly winds.

    Those are beautiful clouds! Trust me, the quality on my camera phone is much worse than yours. I do have a wonderful zoom option though. Keep up the great picture taking though!
