Recognized as one of beautiful words in the English language, iridescent is the most mystically colorful in the spectrum of vocabulary. Iridescent describes the change of color at different angles. Most importantly, it focuses on the luminosity projected by each color. Its beauty is also found in its sound; just say the word. Uttering the word evokes enough beauty. But defining the word establishes an ethereal quality of color found in nature, such as that of a rainbow, seashells, soap bubbles, or in this case clouds shining bright in the West Maui Moonlight, which rapidly change at every transitory movement. These clouds are somewhat common when at the effect of the sun, but to catch such a phenomena at the effect of the moon is another matter - An iridescent rarity as lovely as the word itself.
