Coloured Clouds

When the sunlight is scattered by the atmosphere, the clouds appear to be coloured red, orange or pink. They don’t actually become coloured, but are a reflection, just like how we see the sky as blue, these clouds appear red, orange or pink.

Remember: “Red sky at night, sailor’s delight; red sky in morning, sailors take warning.”
