Cirrus

Shreveport's sky

I have a habit of looking at the clouds once every couple of hours, and I was just blown away by this display of cirrostratus. You can see cirrocumulus forming at the right of the photo from aircraft contrails. The high-level clouds align with the direction of the jet stream and movement in the upper atmosphere. They’re also damn beautiful.
