Often known as Mother of Pearl clouds, nacreous clouds are an extremely rare sight. They form between nine and sixteen miles high in the atmosphere and give off a breathtaking iridescent glow. While they form mostly in the polar regions, they have been known to form across the globe during winter and at high altitudes. These beautiful clouds tend to shine brightly just before dawn or in the two hours just after sunset, making for an unforgettable sight.

Nacreous clouds, observed on January 6, 2011. These polar stratospheric clouds at 80,000 feet are the highest of all clouds. They only occur in the polar regions when the stratospheric temperature dips below 100 degrees below zero Fahrenheit (-73 C). They are also the site of chemical reactions that break down ozone in the upper atmosphere and contribute to the creation of the ozone hole above Antarctica.  Image credit: Kelly Speelman
