Looking Down at Sunrise

Looking Down at Sunrise

When flying around sunrise or sunset, I try to grab a window seat facing that direction; one never knows what sort of visual wonder may await.  On this OKC-HOU leg, middle and high clouds from areas of showers both enriched and muddled the scene for much of the path, except for when one clearing brought a pleasant view of distant cirrus bands and the lowmiddle-level cloud deck.  Then, suddenly, the red orb of the rising sun appeared under the cloud horizon, before vanishing less than 30 seconds later.  Multi-level clouds again filled the view.  It was as if a higher power specifically pried open this narrow, brief window of wondrous and strange visual opportunity and made sure that I was paying attention.
