These glowing polar stratospheric clouds were spotted floating over the UK on January 29, 2016.
That’s the second sighting in two days after those spotted over Murmansk on Wednesday morning.
These nacreous clouds were captured from Aberdeen to Stoneheaven, Scotland, UK by lucky stargazers.
The mother-of-pearl clouds appeared in the sky before sunrise and were highly glowing and reflective.
Polar stratospheric clouds form in the winter polar stratosphere between altitudes of 15000-25000 meters.
They are best observed during twilight and form at very low temperatures, below -78°C.

So intense. They are also called nacreous clouds in relation to the colours seen on the inside of an oyster shell.
