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
