I happened to glance out the window today to see this odd cloud formation. No, it's not two big contrails, it's actually two clouds that happened to criss-cross each other.

Though I did look around to see if an X-man was flying by.

Or maybe it was god, x-ing out Scooter Libby's future prospects.

Don't think they're clouds, look like plane contrails (or entrails as I called them as a child).

But I like them nonetheless.

Yeah I think they're clouds that were "seeded" by contrails. If the conditions are just right the contrails can actually cause a thin layer to form at altitude. They did a study that showed a measurable decrease in cloud cover in the three days of no flights over the US following the 9/11 attacks.
