This is the incredibly colourful cloud which has been compared to a dragon.

The video was recorded by Bruno Provoste Saez, as he was enjoying the sun in the city of Donihue in the province of Cachapoal in the O’Higgins Region of Chile. 

In the video, Saez points the camera towards the multi-coloured cloud and zooms in on it as it stretches thinly across the afternoon sky.

He says in the video: “No aeroplanes or anything like that have passed by here. Look at how amazing the colour of the cloud is. It is beautiful, it is like a dragon’s tail.”

It is not confirmed whether the phenomenon was cloud irisation, a colourful optical phenomenon which happens in a cloud and appears in the general proximity of the Sun or Moon.

This is a fairly common phenomenon and the colours resemble those seen in soap bubbles and oil on the surface of water. 

The colours are usually pastel, although they can be very vivid or mingled together. 

Irisations are named after the Greek goddess of rainbows Iris. 

Iridescent clouds are a diffraction phenomenon caused by small water droplets or small ice crystals individually scattering light.
