When I moved from Arizona to Utah, I traded living on flat ground for living on the side of a mountain. In Mesa, Arizona, I could see part of the sunsets, but most days I missed them because of the trees. Here, I have many uncluttered views to the West and can see the sun set for quite a long time. I couldn't resist this contrail and especially the way it breaks into eddies. You will have to click on the image and look close to see what I am talking about.


  1. I never knew the "vapor trails" were call contrails and eddies.

    1. A contrail is a trail of condensed water from an aircraft or rocket at high altitude, seen as a white streak against the sky. The eddies are the swirls in the line as it dissipates. You may have to click on the photo to see the pattern in the contrail.
