Just looks like the angle to me, sun is basically past the horizon, but since the clouds are high up, they are still getting hit and some of them, the
gold ones, are basically backlit.
Think of when you shine a flashlight through the fog, how it lights up the fog, now amp that up a few thousand lumen and make the fog a thick but
uneven blob, you'll get that golden glow.
Radiation is invisible. You can detect it with meters, and now they just invented a type of video camera that can see it, but you can't see it with
your eyes, it won't make clouds glow, and I do not believe it will appear on film. If you are close enough that radiation is reaching the camera, you
can have it effect the film, but I don't think that would work on digital.
Google and find pictures from Chernobyl, there are photographs taken by the workers during the cleanup, even some video on the roof of one of the
buildings tossing pieces of the reactor down into a pit, you can see what effect radiation has on the film.
Now, you CAN see a fission or fusion reaction, but not radiation.
Actually, I'm lying by omission, non-ionizing radiation can be seen, it's radio waves and light, but that's not the type of radiation you were talking
about, you are referring to ionizing radiation.
That type of radiation is referring mostly to when an electron is knocked out of it's shell. That type of radiation requires some type of meter to
detect, no human senses can detect it UNLESS the radiation interacts with matter, which can have a visual light emission.
