LOOK: ‘Unicorn clouds’ spotted in Pagadian City

/ 08:06 PM April 25, 2017

The sky is certainly filled with magnificent surprises, and these images of amazing cloud formations might just be one of the best ones yet.


One netizen was treated to quite a sight in Pagadian City, Zamboanga del Sur, Philippines, as she documented what appeared to be a “unicorn” in the sky.

Facebook user Anne Elle Salikala captured fluffy cloud formations similar to the shape of the mythical horse-like creature, which was complemented by a vibrant rainbow.


Her video, along with two photos, has since gone viral, and has been shared over 34,000 times, as of this writing.

The all-natural light display, meanwhile, can be attributed to a scientific phenomena called cloud iridescence.

According to a NASA news thread called “An Iridescent Cloud Over Colorado”, the vivid clouds appear when tiny ice crystals and water droplets linger around multiple clouds in the sky. Khristian Ibarrola/JB
