Nacreous Clouds

This is a picture that I took after the sun had already set. Xan says that the cloud is reflecting the sunlight instead of diffracting it. This phenomenon only occurs in the North regions where temperatures will reach -85 C in the sky. It was really pretty and definitely deserved its own post. It looked like fire in the sky.
