Earth Science Picture of the Day for May 11, 2005
A brilliant subsun, seen here from the window of an airplane flying near 25,000 feet, seems to float in clear air above the San Joaquin River in California. This photo was taken on March 3, 2005, over the Central Valley of California -- to the east of San Jose. Subsuns are caused by reflection of the Sun off of flat (horizontally aligned) ice crystals that act like tiny mirrors. They're usually seen in association with clouds lying below the aircraft. Here, however, the cloud layer is so thin as to be completely invisible, making the subsun appear to be of mysterious origin. Far below, the river also reflects sunlight (sunglint) as it winds its way through the narrow canyon it has created over the ages.

Sounds like a similar cause to that of the sun dog.
