What's happening to this cirrus cloud? Ice crystals are acting like little floating prisms. Known informally as a fire rainbow for its flame-like appearance, a circumhorizon arc appears parallel to the horizon. For a circumhorizontal arc to be visible, the Sun must be at least 58 degrees high in a sky where cirrus clouds present below. The numerous, flat, hexagonal ice-crystals that compose the cirrus cloud must be aligned horizontally to properly refract sunlight in a similar manner. Therefore, circumhorizontal arcs are somewhat unusual to see. The featured fire rainbow was photographed earlier this month near West Virginia, USA.

2022-04-27, looking east-southeast just before sunrise. Four planets line up along the ecliptic, accompanied by the waning crescent moon. From left to right: Jupiter, Venus, Mars, and Saturn. Thanks to @apod​ for alerting me that this is happening. A labeled image is below.

The Colours of the Moon
The apparent colour of the moon is dependant more on our atmosphere than the real colour of the moon, sun set produces more reddish moons, air pollution from dust or smoke again can alter it's colour.
Tumblr media
Away from the Earth's atmosphere the moon appears as above, with reflective light from our Sun and even Earth.

Known as N11, this region is visible on the upper right of many images of its home galaxy, the Milky Way neighbor known as the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). The featured image was taken for scientific purposes by the Hubble Space Telescope and reprocessed for artistry. Although the section imaged above is known as NGC 1763, the entire N11 emission nebula is second largest in LMC, only behind the Tarantula Nebula. Dark dust is home to emerging young stars, which are also visible around the image.
