15 July 1998 -- Ship Condensation Trails Off the California Coast

This 2-image Java applet will take a minute or two to load...

Hold any mouse button down as you move the cursor across the large GOES-9 visible image; the smaller inset window shows the corresponding GOES-9 IR fog product image. The fog product imagery reveals some ship tracks within the southernmost cloud deck, which are not apparent in the visible imagery.
