This 'circumzenithal' or 'Bravias' arc appeared for around 40 minutes at 7.20pm last night.

They usually just last for a couple of moments and are caused by light shining at a specific angle through tiny ice crystals in the clouds.

They are much brighter than a normal rainbow with the colours in reverse order.
