We don't need chemicals to give us glowing clouds here.
Every fall or so you'll see "ionized clouds" here in the mountains. They are gorgeous.
It is the same sort of strangeness you feel in a lunar eclipse.
The animals know something's wrong for all the shadows disappear, and the very air itself glows with the color that the clouds take.
Usually it's a strange glowing yellow, to orange, but I've seen a multicolored Cumulus Nimbus before, during such an event.
It was glowing orange underneath and as it rose it got darker, first with a slice of green, and the standard grey of a thick cloud, and a deep black
towards the center topped with a white from the setting sun peaking over the mountains.
When these Ionized Clouds appear, they aren't very common but I take notice every time
, like I said, shadows disappear.
You can't find one even if you created a roof, so long as it has open sides. Even the blades of grass seem to have no shadows between them.
And on the eastern mountains you'll see the grass stand out green, where normally you only see the brown of desert.
Science can't replace nature.
