Condensation trails, Germany - March 16th, 2009

Condensation trails from passing aircraft streak through the skies over Germany and the Baltic Sea.

The island of Rugia (or Rügen), Germany’s largest island, can be seen just left of the center, where many of the trails intersect.

Condensation trails are caused by hot aircraft engine exhaust as it cools in the atmosphere, leaving streaks of condensed water vapor.
