I beat you to that upload ;-) But, your copy is clearer.. It's 'A smoke angel from airplane flares' by Russell E. Cooley, USAF, taken on 22 August 2002. The nasa.gov website says: "The cloud resulted from a series of flares released by an air force jet over the Atlantic Ocean in May. The jet that released the flares, a C-17 Globemaster III, is seen on the right. The flares release smoke and the resulting pattern is sometimes known as a smoke angel. The circular eyes of the above smoke angel are caused by air spiraling off the plane's wings and are known as wingtip vortices." A Bouts also posted a couple of good examples of smoke angels.
