J: Look Up, Look Down: Jet Streams

Don’t you just love seeing jet trails in the deep blue sky?

I captured these jet trails when I lived in Bakersfield, California in 2011. I had just gotten a new camera and I went sky crazy.

This one is from 2008 when I visited my folks in Longmont, Colorado. I love this one because of the juxtaposition of the geese and the planes.


Later the same geese came and settled in the park where we were walking.

Are there a lot of jet trails where you live? As always I welcome your comments on this or any other part of my blog.

    Too funny! I’m pretty sure it was an optical illusion… but then again, we are near a military base so maybe they were doing some kind of trick flying.

    Down here we’re close to the naval base and boy are those planes loud! Up in Idaho we’re near the small airport so get the cute planes… not many jet trails there.

    Cupcake, You would have thought it was Halloween or Easter at that park! Lots and lots of candy. I didn’t know that about dry air, but now I bet you’ll be looking for jet trails all the time to tell her it’s time to go to the park.

    We are in line with the Philadephia Airport so we got everything from jet stream to screaming engines, to planes sounding like they’ll land on roof – but still – fun to watch them come in. At night they cross through the moon. Pretty sight.

    Geese! Yum! They always leave me candies in the grass. Mom says the weatherman told her that jet contrails mean the air is dry. I like that. It means we can go to the park. And no raincoat!

    Love and licks,
