“Will you look at that!!!!”

A little before sunset last night, atmospheric conditions were  just right to reveal the many aircraft, likely full of holiday travelers, flying the skies west of coastal New Jersey.

Thirty or more separate contrails were visible

Contrails like these are relatively high altitude

In the original image above, a lower “local,” aircraft is seen left of center, below the parallel contrails. Click to enlarge.

The above image also contains two nuclear power plants – The Sun, (92 mil. miles – 148 mil. km) and the Oyster Creek Generating Station a little closer, in New Jersey!

Thanks for viewing, and as usual comments are always welcome. M 🙂
