Ok don't really know where to put this


I popped outside this afternoon to have a ciggie and as usual looked up to the sky and saw what i can only describe as a pink rainbow cloud... It was crossing the entire sky from my view point and ran SE- NW.... It carries on further to the left than it looks in the pic, I just dont have a good enough camera to capture the whole sky at once!



It stood out way more in RL than it does in the pics.... Was it just a really weird pink cloud or the milkyway? The milkyway crosses the exact same line from my view 2-3 hrs later....

hiya and


Im in England and it was about 6:30? maybe 7pm...... The sunset was to my left (which is west) and the shot is taken right above my head...... there wasnt a pink sunset to my left and all the low clouds were white.

It was a really clear pink stripe across the sky..... Very pretty and looked for all the world like a pink rainbow

Interesting. I'm wondering if its an aurora event, unusually far south? Where are you located? I checked SpaceWeather.com and we're apparently entering a minor solar wind stream, so some auroras should be happening now. Not sure it's possible for one far south, or so bright as to be seen during the day, though.

Ah, a pink sunset happening at the same time. I'm now going to guess you were just seeing some of that same pink sunset light being reflected off water vapors in the sky.

I think LifeInDeath may be on to something there (solar winds).

And now to add fuel to the fire..... 6:30pm in London is 1:30pm EST. Which is ...... well, you know!

At that time, the Milky Way would have been running from north to south. I could actually have told you it wouldn't have been the Milky Way, anyway, since you said the Milky Way was in the same spot about 2 hours later. It would have moved in that time.

NO there WASNT a pink sunset at the same time, to my left (west) the sky was a slightly darker blue with the same clouds

Perhaps. But, for a sunset in the west, that would be expected to cross the sky from northeast to southeast, or from northwest to southwest...not from northwest to southeast.

just a thought, I saw a similar thing in Wales just after an RAF air-show, sounds like similar or maybe practice flights? Are you near any RAF bases?

What I'm saying is that when you saw that, it was around the time the EQ hit us here on the East Coast.

I don't think the Milky way can be observed during the daylight hours. I did some checking around before posting this, and I could not find any site stating that this is possible. But, over at Spaceweather.com this was posted

AURORA WATCH: Earth is entering a minor solar wind stream that could stir up geomagnetic activity around the Arctic Circle. Sky watchers at high latitudes should be alert for auroras.

Aurora then? It was defiantly way above the clouds and crossed the whole sky from my view point.

The sunset to the west wasnt pink, the only pink was that rainbow effect running across the sky
