22° Sun Halo and Plane Contrail

A 22° halo around the sun with a plane contrail casting a shadow on a thin cloud layer - possibly of hexagonal ice crystals. The unusual bent line of the contrail must be further away than the thin cloud layer because it casts a shadow onto the cloud creating a very strange illusion.
