Germany - April 28th, 2010

Condensation trails are visible over Germany, some of the Danish isles and the Baltic Sea in this recent image that was obviously taken on a day when ash from the erupting Eyjafjallajokul volcano was not blowing over northern european airspace and interfering with flights.

Condensation trails, or contrails, are streaks of condensed water vapor caused by hot engine exhaust  from airplanes cooling in the atmosphere.
