Two parhelia are visible on each side of the Sun. They extend themselves to form a parhelic circle. The upper tangent arc (stick to the 22° halo) is easily visible because they are formed by the same crystals, hexagonal plate ones.
A contrail is casting many shadows on the different layers of cirrus.
