Skywatch Friday - Orange Cloud Over Nepal

Happy Friday!!

My skywatch photo today comes from Nepal. It was early in the morning, and this big, soft orange cloud appeared over the mountains as I came down from Anapurna Base Camp...it only last a few minutes, and then it turned white...

Hmm... I wonder what causes the orange? Is it the same as what causes an orange moon? It makes for a very pretty and intriguing photo!
