The view from an airplane window is something that many passengers enjoy the most during a long flight.

And a traveler was surprised after seeing what appeared to be another plane trapped in a full circle of rainbow while enjoying a landscape at 30,000 feet above the ground.

Recordings made from the aircraft window by the passenger show an aircraft that apparently moves with the colorful ring while remaining in it. The scene is caused by an optical illusion.

The incredible scene was filmed from a domestic flight in China.

Experts say that the phenomenon was caused by a general optical illusion.

The spectrum captured by the images was formed after a beam of light shone through the plane and on which the passenger was standing and was reflected and curved by ice crystals, meteorological engineer Bian Yun told MailOnline.

While the & # 39; plane & # 39; within the spectrum was actually the shadow of the photographer's own plane, the expert added.

According to Mr. Bian, who works for China Meteorological Administration, the phenomenon is common, but is best observed when the clouds are thick.

& # 39; Many people do not look well when they look out of the airplane window & # 39 ;, said Mr. Bian.
