Contrails over the Persian Gulf were seen by both Meteosat-10 and Metop-A in mid-December.

The evolution of the contrails is best captured by the Meteosat-10 High Resolution Visible (HRV) imagery (Figure 1).
The Night Cloud Microphysics RGB (NCMP) imagery (Figure 2) also had some strength, although it lacked the resolution of the HRV imagery.
The combination of them both (Figure 3), gives an even better view of the two instances of densely packed, aligned contrails moving slowly eastward from the waters of the Gulf across the Iranian coastline.
The enhanced Metop-A Natural Colour RGB from AVHRR (Figure 4) shows the first instance of the contrails in better spatial resolution.
