Unusual phenomenon creates aurora-like clouds in the sky, netizens are amazed by it


Residents in Bangsar city in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia were blessed with a chance to witness an unusually rare phenomenon in the sky on May 28.  

The rare phenomenon saw thick clouds with aurora-like lights peeking out from behind which in turn created a burst of color in the sky.

The natural phenomenon is believed to be the “Crown Flash”, a rare weather phenomenon caused by sunlight reflecting or refracting off small ice crystals in the clouds.
