A fire rainbow, unlike a regular rainbow which we see when rain drops meet sunrays, occurs when sunlight refracts through ice-crystal clouds.

Others have said it could also have been cloud iridescence, which happens when water droplets or crystals scatter light.

Childcare worker Fazidah Mokhtar told the BBC, "It started as a small orange circle and then grew bigger and bigger till all the colours came out... It lasted for about 15 minutes and it slowly went off."
