Here, many condensation trails can be seen over Cairo, Eygpt, and the Mediterranean Sea.

One particularly interesting trail follows a spiralled path, rather than being razor-straight like the others. This is probably due to an airplane that couldn’t land immediately and was forced to remain in a holding pattern near the airport until landing clearance was given.

In the close-up of the mouth of the Nile, the shadows of the trails are visible onland. To the south there is an agricultural area in the desert, in which many circular fields can be seen.
