Thanks David, yes this is the case I referred to in a previous
post as possibly being in Canada - I couldn't recall the
details. But I do recall wondering, as I said, if this mightn't
be the shadow of a high contrail cast on a lower veil of cloud
that is scattering sunlight. Looking at the photos again I still
get this impression. But then again, an hour is much too long
surely for any contrail to survive, and the mechanic did
describe the object as circular. Still an interesting report.
