Shadows of a plane on clouds

I saw a bizarre effect when on the plane to Edinburgh yesterday. The sun was behind the plane and there was an image of the sun (or at least a refraction circle that looked like the sun, but had rainbow edges) on the cloud below, with a little shadow of the plane inside it. As we got lower the shadow of the plane got bigger, but the sun image stayed the same size (see later image in Flickr)
