The Cloud Appreciation Society

Hey, my rainbow cloud has now appeared on the Cloud Appreciation Society website!

The photo gallery editor, Ian, sent me this link, which explains how this phenomenon occurs (equinox -tick; midday - tick; cirrus clouds - tick).

Just the thing while you're enjoying a long cup of coffee, or lunch, or just an idle ten minutes - click here and start the slideshow. There are shots of clouds (and a few rainbows) from all over the world - from the everyday clouds we all too often fail to marvel at, to the breathtakingly beautiful and the wildly freakish.

Also on the Cloud Appreciation Society site I found a link to these amazing photographs of clouds from above - taken from the Space Shuttle.

Isn't it a fabulous site? Delighted that the Muddy Island cloud is now appearing there too!
