    I was told that this are "The ice crystals at the top of the cumulonimbus cloud, diffracting the light into the colors of the rainbow! That is a phenomenon that we see with "sundogs," but not usually with the cirrus tops of big thunderstorms--but the backlighting makes it possible and thus credible".

    Hmmm.... so it seems this phenomenum is not so rare after all. I actually saw it twice and both times had camera but second time was not so dramatic and beautiful, I probably deleted the file.
