Contrails are thin, white, and sometimes long clouds that form behind aircraft as they fly at high altitudes in the Earth's atmosphere. When the hot exhaust gases from aircraft engines mix with the colder surrounding air, the water vapor in the exhaust condenses into tiny ice crystals or water droplets.

The formation of contrails is similar to the formation of clouds. Water vapor in exhaust cools and condenses, leaving visible streaks in the sky. Depending on atmospheric conditions such as temperature, humidity, and wind patterns, the trails can be short or long-lasting.

Contrails are most commonly seen at high altitudes, where the air is colder and contains more moisture. They can last for minutes to hours and can spread out to form cirrus-like clouds known as "persistent contrails" or "contrail cirrus" under certain conditions.
