Clouds and sundogs

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

Only a few photos for today of cirrus clouds, sundogs and contrails.

Sundog

“A sundog is a patch of light at the same elevation of the Sun, and appears a distance away from it of about the span of an outstretched hand held at arms length. It has a reddish edge towards the Sun and a bluish-white tail away from it.” From the Cloud Appreciation Society’s website. Put better than I ever could!

Con trails. I do hope the planes passed at different times otherwise this looks like a near miss!
