Abstract: 
The coherence of the light scattered in spatial-limited regions of solar halo is discovered and investigated by an experimental approach. We developed a remote sounding method based on the use of an interferometer with a small angular aperture and of a coelostat. Spatial coherence of the light scattered by solar halo is due to aerosol particles. Some suggestions on application of the coherence of light in aerospace investigations are made.
