Caption: Timelapse footage of mountain waves made visible by clouds, as contrails pass above them. A strong westerly wind over the mountains produces a long-lasting cloud marking a possible hydraulic jump along the Colorado Front Range. A layer of pollution is also visible near the ground. Jet contrails are seen being distorted by mountain wave action aloft. Filmed in Colorado, USA, in autumn.
