    Edit Photo Details Iridescent clouds. Salta, Argentina   #cloud #argentina #salta #iridescent
    Photograph of an Iridescent cloud taken in Salta, Argentina in 2011. After reading a post from National Geographic on my Facebook that said that these clouds aren't a common occurrence, I decided to upload this picture. Should I consider myself lucky then?

    Please, study the lecture "Love For Physics" via You Tube with Prof. Walter Lewin at MIT. You will learn, that there are rainbows of order 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.... When you know more about them , you will detect them yourself. All those phenomens of blue sky, red sky, white clouds, rainbaws, halos uam depend on the Rayleigh Scattering. The size of the scattering paricles is important. Thank you for the foto. Crigs

    Have fun with Walter Lewin !
