Caption: 'Mare's tail' cirrus cloud. Cirrus is a high- altitude cloud, formed of ice crystals. It appears as white delicate filaments, patches or streaks. The long streaks with feathery ends, as seen here, have the common name of 'mare's tail'. Isolated cirrus is sometimes known as an emissary sky, as it often heralds an approaching cyclonic storm.
