I hate to break it to ya, but nobody is blocking the sun in Washington State. the last few days have been beautiful, about seventy degrees, and deliciously sunny. In the Spring and Fall there is always a haze in the morning that burns off by Noon at the latest. These days it has been gone by 9:30 or so. There is nothing at all peculiar about the weather. I've lived here all my life and there is nothing, absolutely nothing special going on.
And for the record, there is not a time, day or night, when yu can look into the sky and NOT see an airplane up there. SeaTac is one of the busiest airports in the world. Other aorports that can handle jets in the immediate area include Boeing Field, Renton, McChord AFB, Whidbey Island NAS and Everett. They are all pretty much in a row right up Puget Sound.
And in the mornings before it warms up, "density altitude" is below sea level, a wonderfulk time to fly a small airplane because the performance is enhanced. This term speaks to the thickness of the air and is an IDEAL time when contrails are formed. And that's all you are seeing.
Nice pics, though.

Why cant people discuss this subject without all the name calling, seriously it's pathetic and immature.
You showed me dude, you put me in my place!

I'll give you an example: When I was driving down 167 all the trees on the side of the highway were cut so only the tops had leaves and it looked like they were making them resemble palm trees. Also the weather here has been turning more extreme with more mild winters, except that there are days or weeks within winter where it's snowed more than ever I've noticed before, followed by longer and warmer springs and falls.

I'm in WA State. Yesterday has been the most beautiful day of the year!
At one point it was 87 degrees, sunny all day.
Guess I just don't wake up early enough to catch some conspiracies.
Cirrus clouds are formed when water vapor undergoes deposition at high altitudes where the atmospheric pressure ranges from 600 mbar at 4,000 m (13,000 ft) above sea level to 200 mbar at 12,000 m (39,000 ft) above sea level. These conditions commonly occur at the leading edge of a warm front. Because humidity is low at such high altitudes, these clouds tend to be very thin.

I am on the other side of the state, and it has been going on here too..... the morning starts out with extremely blue skies, then you see "contrails" and a couple of hours later it is cloudy.......... My phone takes really bad pics, otherwise I would try to post some..
It is almost like a checkerboard in the sky that gradually fills in to a cloud cover.

Last I heard Washinton State needed no assistance blocking the sun averaging roughly 210 or so cloudy days out of of 365.

Any one who denies that planes are spraying the skies with stuff we don't know, or these are normal contrails, are most probably being paid to post.
If you keep that in mind, every thing's sweet.
The sky is a dirty haze today where I'm at.
