    cant tell exactly from ur shot, but it might Iridescent clouds..
    They are formed from small water droplets of near uniform size. When the sun is properly positioned, mostly behind thick clouds, these thin clouds almost coherently diffract sunlight, and as a rainbow, different wavelengths are diffracted different amounts. Thus the colors hit the observer from different directions.

    It's the refraction of light against the particles in the clouds and atmosphere.

    Ice crystals refracting the sunlight causing something that resembles a "Sundog" depending on the angle viewed.

    That is part of a lens coating of an Alien race's 100 000 mm f/0.00001 lens.

    jokes aside it looks kinda creepy. particulary when the reason weather on earth seems odd.
