Rare Photograph of Rainbow Contrails Created by Cloud Iridescence

Cloud iridescence-kagaya

Earlier this month Japanese CG artist and photographer Yutaka Kagaya (previously) was perched atop a hill in the village of Oshino near the foot of Mt. Fuji. This, as it turned out, happened to be the right place at the right time for a rare, magical moment. That moment occurred when cloud iridescence appeared in the sky. The occurrence of colors in clouds is itself a fairly uncommon phenomenon. But the magic happened when a plane suddenly passed through the clouds, leaving behind rainbow-colored contrails.

Kagaya was ready with his camera and snapped several pictures, two of which he posted to his twitter account. The photographer, who has a passion for all things celestial, admits that even he had never seen something like this before.

    Oh please, you think air pollution is pretty? Would it be just as pretty spewing out of your car and lingering for hours? Geoengineeringwatch.org
