Contrails Over St. Louis on 9-14-2009

Post by Apoptosis » Mon Sep 14, 2009 8:11 am

This morning Jeff tipped me off about some Contrails that were forming this morning and I walked out the door and sure enough there was a whole bunch of them...

First walking out my house I see this right out my front door:
