The very rare Phenomena 'nacreous clouds' illuminate the sky like something from a science-fiction movie. Residents of Ambleside, Cumbria, were surprised to see an impressive array of colours when they looked skyward yesterday. This was shot by photographer Ashley Cooper, the clouds have been see-able in various parts of the UK over the last few days - with many Brits mistaking them for the aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights. However, the amazing light display was actually caused by a natural phenomenon known as cloud opalescence, which happens when tiny ice crystals or water droplets in the air cause the light from the sun to be scattered.
