The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe,is as good as dead.

Thanks for sharing those Matthew. There's a very interesting selection of phenomena going on in those images. Like the contrail, posssibly spent contrail to the left and the strange twists of cloud on the horizon which almost seem to glow. They have a shape and colour similar to NLC large scale wirls/loops. I agree with Roman about the row of cars back lit by the Sun. Very nice!  Smiley
