YES! It is called a 'Fire Rainbow' - One of the rarest of all naturally occuring atmospheric phenomena. The picture was captured on the Idaho - Washington border, and the event was reported to have lasted about 1 hour.
Clouds have to be Cirrus, at least 20K feet in the air, with just the right amount of ice crystals and the Sun has to hit the clouds at precisely an angle of 58 degrees.
