Plane shadow above cloud spectrum

Plane shadow above cloud spectrum - General Interest
Central France had total cloud cover when we flew back from Corsica in September 2013. Having a window seat, I noticed a circular spectrum suddenly appear on top of the clouds. Then, as the plane banked, its shadow appeared in the spectrum! An amazing sight. Would welcome an explanation from meteorologists!
