Caption: Vapour trails at night. These high-altitude trails appear similar to noctilucent clouds. They were, in fact, related to a missile launch and are thus 'man-made'. True noctilucent clouds are more extensive and more uniformly white, but have a very similar appearance. Photographed in Finland.
