Caption: Moon and aeroplane contrails. Aeroplane leaving contrails behind it as it flies in front of the Moon. At high altitudes the water vapour emitted as a product of the jet engine's combustion raises the relative humidity of the surrounding air past saturation point and the resulting water droplets freeze into visible ice crystals.
