Photographer's Note

Our plane was just hitting the southern tip of the Ayeyarwadi state of Myanmar during a Mumbai to Bangkok flight, when I saw this optical phenomenon called a glory
A small, circular rainbow down on the clouds...

Pilots see it quite often, so it is also called "glory of the pilot"


Alors que nous survolions la pointe sud de l'état de l'Ayeyarwadi en Birmanie, j'ai vu cet étonnant phénomène optique sur les nuages, presque 10 000 m plus bas... Ca s'appelle une "gloire".
Fréquemment observée par les pilotes d'avion, on l'appelle aussi gloire du pilote.
