Presumably that's a link that only works if you're logged into FB. It's a dead link here.

The recent lack of contrails has been great for imaging.  It reminds of the period of the eruption of Iceland volcano with the long complicated name.  That must have been about 10 years ago.

Doesn't look too bad to me, only one contrail.

Nice sky Roger
You must be near the coast; light has a different quality to it.
I have noticed the odd plane in the last day or so (maybe a delayed shipment of PPE??).

Today there's been some high altitude cloud, but some days recently there's been none at all. I've even noticed a few planes flying over here (usually either heading off west over the ocean or coming in the other way) at altitude but not leaving much of a contrail at all.
