A rare phenomenon has been spotted each of the last two days in the skies of eastern North Carolina.
Known as cloud iridescence, it is a relatively rare occurrence, according to WCNC-TV NBC Charlotte Chief Meteorologist Brad Panovich.
“The cloud must be thin and have lots of water droplets or ice crystals all about the same size,” said Panovich, who also noted one was spotted over Charlotte on Monday.
The iridescence was visible from a variety of locations in the region looking east-southeast between 11 a.m. and noon.
@dioptrica on Twitter said they spotted the same cloud over Beaufort along the Crystal Coast of North Carolina on Tuesday.
