Serveral Stompers reported seeing rare 'rainbow clouds' in the eastern and northern parts of Singapore yesterday. (Nov 22)

Stomper Stella witnessed the phenomenon near Expo at around 5pm.

Stella told Stomp, "I was driving my kids back home from a chess competition that they had won. It was quite lovely and my kids saw it too."

Stompers Heng also spotted the rainbow clouds at Woodlands while Stomper Eddie saw it at Changi Village.

The 'rainbow clouds' could be iridescent clouds which are formed when light passes through tiny ice crystals or water droplets and is diffracted, thus resulting in a rainbow-like effect.
