Caption: Cirrus cloud. Wisps of cirrus cloud in the sky. Cirrus is a high-altitude (6,000-12,000 metres height) ice crystal cloud which forms delicate filaments or fibres. These clouds are usually associated with fair weather, and when drawn out into plumes by the wind they are sometimes known as "mares' tails".
