Incredible video footage has captured the moment an amazing rainbow cloud suddenly appeared in the sky.

The multi-coloured light, which appears like a hole in the middle of the sky, was caught on camera in Fazenda São João, a tourist hotspot in Parana, Brazil.

Salesman André Luiz Nassif caught the moment on camera during a break from work on Sunday, January 28.

The phenomenon is actually known as irisation and occurs and is defined as multiple mixed iridescent colours caused by sunlight being diffracted in clouds .

Meteorologist Graziella Goncalves told UOL : "It occurs due to the decomposition of sunlight in the seven colours of the rainbow."
