Caption: View of long cirrus clouds & transverse bands over the Atlantic, 160 km northwest of Dakar on the westernmost tip of Africa. The clouds probably marked the location of a subtropical jetstream that starts to the east of the tropical region of the Atlantic & sweeps up over the Sahara to the southern Mediterranean; the transverse bands may indicate a spiralling circulation within the jetstream. Photographed by a camera aboard the unmanned Apollo 6 spacecraft in April 1968.
