    1. Hi Liz. This was a crazy cloud. That rainbow start is what caught my attention… a trumpet of color. I think that is the official “refraction” in this composition. The beams coming through the cloud are called Crepuscular Rays. In terms of atmospheric optics, they are an example of “Mie Scattering” when visible light is scattered parallel to incident light by cloud droplets or ice crystals.
