Nacreous Clouds

Nacreous or mother-of-pearl clouds are usually to be seen in the Arctic and Antarctic as well as above Iceland and Scandinavia. Yesterday they featured in different parts of Britain. Those above are over Whitley Bay, Northumberland, and appeared in the Daily Mail. Those in The Orcadian were photographed by Jenny McElroy from Stenness, Orkney. It so often pays to look up.
