Contrails - #SkywatchFriday

March 19, near Binghamton, New York.
I don't know why, but airplane contrails have been so noticeable this week.

I took these pictures in the early morning as the sun was rising.  Moments later, these contrails, pink with the sunrise, had mostly dissipated.


Time for the sunrise.

Join Yogi and other watchers of the sky each Friday at #SkywatchFriday.

  1. What lovely pink contrails and colours in your sky.

  2. The skies trap vapour that pass their layers - vapour emitted from gas that's not usually seen in those layers - they can trap our oxygen for us.1

    It was man machines that made them they say - flying creatures with roaring fumes - they go away so quickly and always in a straight line.

    Someday, I will fly too!

  5. Might it be the air temperature?

  6. How lovely to see beauty celebrated in places we might not normally look for it. Reminds me of that lovely scene in American Beauty with the film of the plastic bag dancing with the wind

  7. It's just like when we exhale in the winter and see our breaths. Simply the hot exhaust gases mixing with the air, and the excess humidity condensing.

  8. Lovely pictures. Then there are those viewing who feel they are pollutants to our society at large!

  11. The addition of the contrails just makes the sky that more interesting. I don't see them that often, I wonder if I need to look for them more.

  12. Contrails were all we ever saw of planes when I was growing up, until one day, just once, we actually saw the plane itself. My brother and I were agog with wonder as the outside world passed over our sleepy little town!
