Beautiful nacreous clouds appear over England

Yesterday rainbow clouds were spotted over Northumberland, England. Scientifically known as polar stratospheric clouds, the colourful cloud formation appeared a bit more southern than usual.
This kind of a phenomenon is also known as nacreous clouds.

What is really cool is that this type of clouds will linger on for this week as the UK is having some really cold weather.
