Spectacular "rainbow" cloud in Kansas, too!

This parallels the Tawakoni, TX account of 8/9/00 at 23:50. On my way back to work I saw an extraordinary high cirrus cloud formation. Slightly larger than the back of your hand held at arms length, the cloud had a gorgeous, irradescent rainbow effect over it's full length. Similar to "sun dogs" (which I've seen several times) this was much more spectacular. I only mention it after reading the similar account out of TX on about the same day and was curious that the distance between KS and TX would allow the same cloud phenominon.
