Except the 22 degrees halo on the lower right corner in this picture taken with a fisheye lens, a weird dark bar seeming to originate from the Sun cross the photo. It is the contrail (visible near the Sun) shadow.
Indeed, the airplane flew higher than the cirrus layer in which the halo has formed, so its shadow cast on the cirrus veil. In the picture, the trail is at least 120 degrees long!
