The other day while flying from Boston, MA, to Newark, NJ, I looked up and saw what looked like a "reverse contrail" in the clouds above us. A contrail is formed from the small amounts of water found in a jet engines exhaust mixing with super cold air. What happened in these photos was actually a jet flying through a thin cloud, but it looked like an invisible contrail . Within a few minutes the cloud had "reattached" itself and the photo opportunity was gone. Good thing I was ready!
