Beautiful contrails paint the sky after sunset – 12.17.2017


Multiple levels of contrails and cirrus. Contrails are condensation trails produced by the exhaust from high flying jets. As the trails “age” they spread out and become less distinct and sometimes can form a cloud layer. Some contrails evaporate quickly if the upper-level atmosphere is exceedingly dry.

Thanks for stopping by!

Not a common sight to see across Florida skies. Cirrocumulus (Cc) clouds are normally found above 25,000 feet (Florida). These were actually higher than nearby condensation trails left by high flying jets. Seen in early October.

Flying high above Walt Disney World…
