Flight to North America

Here are a couple interesting photos taken from the airplane window during my flight home to Colorado from Peru last week.

Airplane sunrise

Crazy sunrise light in the western sky somewhere over Mexico (?). I have no idea what caused the upside-down shadow sunburst in the sky… any astronomers out there that can enlighten me? There were some clouds to east that may have caused some strange refractions… ?
