Sky Watch Season # 4 Episode # 10

                                         Sky Watch Friday 
This is the place. Please check out the site and link in if you wish to participate. There were a lot of people with beautiful Sky photos last week. You can link in from my side bar or at the start of this post. You can link at 3:00 PM EDT on Thursdays. SWF is run by Klaus, Wren, Sandy, Sylvia and myself. 

Bluebird skies make you look for something of interest. Here we see a set of contrails in the sky.
Here is the jet making the contrails. The telephoto lens sure helps.
Check out the other great skies above.

Jet trails fascinate me as a kid...and even now. yes, the constant question for them is their destination...

I agree with Gizelle, there's something fascinating about them. I remember the first jet streams I saw when I was a child, many years ago. My brother and I used to discuss, endlessly, the exciting idea of breaking the sound barrier.

Very cool indeed.

Hilary said...

Cool. The air was so still and humid one day last week, we watched a set of contrails take at least 2 hours to dissipate. Well we didn't watch the full time.. we weren't that bored without the fishing wind. ;)

Janie said...

That's a great jet shot, and I love the butterfly header.
