Actually the UK does have some recordable seismic activity in the form of something called Post Glacial Rebound.

Ever since the ice age ended Scotland has been rising and some say that the secondary effect of this is that lower England is dropping gently into the sea much like a ship that is tipping bow first like a gigantic titanic.

The process of course is very slow but it is measurable and may well explain the fact that at times we do have earth tremors .

I saw the same kind of cloud coverage last night here in Wiltshire. They really caught my eye, can't even explain why really other than they looked different from our "normal" cloud coverage. Anyway lovely pics thanks for posting. Peace

Definently iridescenece. There seems to be some misinterpretation of what earthquake clouds really are.

Indeed not. We've had a number of tremors down in the South East of the UK in the past few years

Here is a link to the British Geological website, in the last 30 days there have been a few tremors/earthquakes in Britain, Scotland and Ireland.

So the answer is no, you don't have to be near a fault line for one to occur.

I've been informed by my girlfriend that she thinks it's a sun-dog. Great pics by the way!

The volcano in Iceland (Eyjafjallajokull) has been spewing all sorts of stuff into the atmosphere over the last few weeks, maybe that's affecting some of the clouds in some way?

Remember the earthquake we had in Feb 2008? That was a 4.7, pretty much the entire country felt that one, even some guys I know in Ireland felt it.

If could be related to the CME from the sun a couple of days ago that his currently hitting our magnetosphere.

If you go here you can see that we are currently, and have been off and on for 2 days, experiencing pressure.

Real Time Magnetosphere Simulation

It is usually seen as Northern Lights.

Could this be it?

Thankyou for the link Oz, It was actually moving towards the sun till it faded, I was awestruck!

If you look a few posts up you will see a link to all of the pictures that I took of it.....Better change the title of the album from Sundog to Circumzenithal Arc though.
