CLEVELAND — Some News 5 viewers captured a rare weather phenomenon that produced rainbow-like clouds in the sky on Wednesday.
Iridescent clouds, also known as "fire rainbows" or "circumhorizontal arcs," occur when the sunlight diffracts off hexagonal ice crystals in cirrus clouds.
This typically happens in the late afternoon on hot and humid days.
