Late in the afternoon of June 5, a giant piece of colorful cloud appeared over the sky in Shenzhou Peninsula, Wanning City of south China's Hainan Province. A child on a fishing ship had the luck to observe this spectacular phenomenon. When the sun went down, the colorful cloud dispersed gradually.

The colorful cloud results from the refraction of ice crystal particles contained in clouds.
