Strange Colorful Cloud Over Metroplex

FORT WORTH, Texas -- A weird-looking cloud sporting the colors of the rainbow appeared to many in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex early Thursday afternoon. The cloud stayed in the southeastern sky for several minutes, but was obscured by other clouds at times. NBC 5 Meteorolgist James Aydelott offered one possible explanation, saying that the sun was hitting the cloud at just the right angle, similar to a phenomenon known as "sun dogs," causing the colorful display. He also said he had never seen a cloud like this before. NBC 5 Chief Meteorologist David Finfrock noted in Thursday's Weather Blog post that a viewer e-mailed the station, where he explained the display was possibly caused by a "fuel dump" from an aircraft.
