How to use iridescence in a sentence?

  1. Mark Lemmon:

    Where we see iridescence, it means a cloud’s particle sizes are identical to their neighbors in each part of the cloud, by looking at color transitions, we’re seeing particle size changing across the cloud. That tells us about the way the cloud is evolving and how its particles are changing size over time.

  2. Nick Wiltgen:

    In clouds, iridescence is a byproduct of sunlight being diffracted by water droplets or ice crystals, causing the various wavelengths of light – which we see as colours – to emerge at different angles, as they reach the observer’s eye, the observer perceives a pattern of various colours as those different wavelengths reach his or her eye from distinct directions, rather than being jumbled together and appearing whitish.

  3. Field Museum senior research scientist:

    There’s more than one way to make magenta with iridescence, the parent species each have their own way of making magenta, which is, I think, why you can have this nonlinear or surprising outcome when you mix together those two recipes for producing a feather color.
