France – August 21st, 2012

Smoke from fires in Europe creates a grey veil over parts of France in this image. Also of note are a series of criss-crossed contrails over southern France and the Gulf of Lion. Contrails, also known as condensation trails or vapor trails, are long, thin, artificial clouds that sometimes form behind aircraft.
