Interesting. Can you explain how that relates to this discussion about high elevations?
And, just so you know...ANOTHER plane just flew by...at 10:25 a.m. PST.
June Gloom (sometimes May Gray) is a Southern California term for a weather pattern that results in overcast skies with cool temperatures during the late spring and early summer in the mornings and afternoons. For example, June is the cloudiest month of the year in San Diego. In the early 20th century, this phenomenon was sometimes known as "high fog." The condition is prevalent in many parts of the world where an offshore marine layer of stratus or stratocumulus clouds is common, such as the western coasts of continents—particularly off Peru, Namibia, Western Australia, and Northern California, particularly San Francisco. Such cloud systems are persistent year-round off the coast; in certain seasons they move ashore and create the cloudy, cool effect on land. Early mornings during this period are typically foggy, with an occasional drizzle. The fog turns to low clouds by late morning and early afternoon. Finally, by afternoon, solar heating is sufficient to evaporate the clouds. Often the overcast will evaporate ("burn off") quickly in inland areas, but will linger almost all day along the coast. In Southern California, the number of days in May and June that are "gloomy" vary from year to year. Years with warmer ocean temperatures, referred to as El Niño, may result in fewer gray days in May and June. Cooler ocean temperatures, associated with La Niña, usually foretell a more gray period. Sometimes the cloudiness continues into July, a condition known as "Summer Bummer." Northern and Central California coastal areas typically have foggy weather all throughout the summer into early fall. June Gloom has been reported by some Californians to bring on symptoms consistent with seasonal affective disorder.[citation needed

Doesnt need a weather report when i have my own EYES. What part DONT you get? This stuff is DRIFTING. This is not normal cloud coverage. This stuff has WEIGHT to it! I can SEE IT.
If you say, they're contrails....you're gonna have a hard time explaining these pics, FROM TODAY! Ironically enough, there WAS a plane earlier that left a CONTRAIL...but since then, these planes are leaving loooong, thick trails. Hardly contrails my friend.
Short-Lived (on the left)
A contrail that forms and disappears as
the plane moves along. Although its length remains
about constant it may be very short, or it may span
a large fraction of the sky. Generally it is very thin.
A thin contrail that remains in the sky
after the plane has disappeared. These
contrails are not much wider than the
short-lived contrails and are thinner than
1 finger held at arm's length.
A thick contrail that remains in the sky
after the plane has disappeared. They are
wider than 1 finger held at arm's length.
These contrails can grow to resemble
natural cirrus clouds.

So, the clouds should be moving towards me...right? hmmm, then...how come THESE clouds are moving towards the ocean. Picture the sunsetting over the pacific ocean! Yeah well, that's the direction those clouds are moving. And the clouds (as i like to call them) are not drifting away....like normal clouds do. You can see the difference.
