Midday Skyscape from Eastern Himalayas

This might come across as a tricky question. How many of us have seen the midday sun? It is not the sunlight that I am referring to, but the sun itself. Well, I have. And I found this moment in the high altitude of the Eastern Himalayas.

Midday sun blocked by the clouds
I was exploring the area around the India-China border of Arunachal Pradesh when I looked up and saw the sun through the clouds. Initially, I thought it was the moon, but a short while later when the clouds moved, I realized that it was indeed the sun.

Clouds cover the sun
May be, it was the 12,000 feet that did the trick or may be it was the moon that I saw through the clouds. Nevertheless, it was a fantastic midday sky that I came across in the high Eastern Himalayas of Arunachal Pradesh in North East India.
