File Under

I always try and get a window seat when I fly so that I can grab a few pics of the world below. While flying over Connecticut on a work trip back in 2015, I managed to see and photograph my first "glory." Here's a Wikipedia article that explains this optical phenomenon. I took this photo with an old Samsung phone.
