Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at airplane contrails in the skies over Florida and Georgia.

“These are definitely contrails,” said Bastiaan Van Diedenhoven, a researcher for Columbia University and NASA’s Goddard Institute. “Patterns like this don’t form naturally.”

This natural-color image was captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on board the Aqua satellite.
