Rainbow clouds today

This morning from about eight o'clock and for more than half an hour in Newcastle upon Tyne (and other parts of the region), we had the most extraordinary skies I have ever seen - I stood and watched in amazement and wonder at the changing display. The colours were such as I have never seen in nature before - and yet of course they were natural. It really looked as if something tremendous, apocalyptic, was about to happen. But, of course, the tremendous thing was actually already happening - right there in front of me.
