Prestonians were treated to a rather strange looking sky on Monday evening.Advertisement
Wispy pink clouds appeared as strong winds from Storm Henry continue to rip through the city.
Dark clouds, looking like storm clouds, are racing overhead and the pink lights can be seen through the gaps.
The clouds are understood to be nacreous clouds, sometimes called mother-of-pearl clouds. They are rarely seen this far south.
Prestonians have been taking to social media to share their pictures of the clouds as the sun set across Preston.
