Caption

Aircraft contrail, or vapour trail, left by an aircraft flying at high altitude. Contrails are artificial clouds formed from frozen water droplets from the exhaust of the engines of an aircraft. They form when aircraft are flying at altitudes exceeding 5000 metres and when the upper atmosphere is nearly saturated with moisture. In dry air the contrail quickly dissipates. Winds have caused this contrail to become wavy. Photographed over Finland.
