This is no graphical effect, it is real. It isn’t a distorted rainbow either, it as a circumhorizontal arc, this is rare photograph of this phenomenon. It is caused by light passing through wispy, high-altitude cirrus clouds. The sight occurs only when the sun is very high in the sky (more than 58° above the horizon) and well.. oh hell there are too many conditions applicable to when this occurs… just read it from original source…
