Spectre of the Brocken

Shadow of our King Air C90 descending into Lander, WY. The rainbow is called a glory, the shadow is called the spectre of the brocken, and the white light in the center at the antisolar point is called heiligenschein (holy light).

 

Note: There is a "better", very slightly editied version of this photo in my gallery that brings out the colors a bit more....
