Carletta said...

WOW! I love it! The way the train is poised as if to come around reminds me of the Professor's train in one of those "Back to the Future Movies."
I'm with Michele - the contrail being there is as if another steam engine just went the other way!
Excellent Skywatch!

Lovely jet stream... I wonder whether the jet was flying TO or from Florida! (If I were on it, it would be flying TO Florida!)

Interesting weathervane.
If that contrail was a slightly different angle, it would look like its track!
