    I've never seen this rainbow effect in clouds before or since. Does anyone know what it's called?

      Don't know if there's a special term, but "cloud refraction" seems to describe it. Great shot.

      Its A Rainbow Affect... Its For Cirro Level Clouds (The Highest Level Of Clouds)... its the reflection of of the sun (Since They Are So High). It's Usually With Cirrus Clouds Though.

      Officially it is called an iridescent cloud, aka Fire Rainbows or Rainbow Clouds. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_iridescence I have a couple pictures from one I saw this summer that I still need to post. This is a spectacular photo, by the way!
