Jet contrails photographed over Australia 
that might be mistaken briefly for meteor trails.

Jet Contrails  image by Peter Lake

Two aircraft heading south and one heading north. The aircraft are usually a bit further away than what you think, given the angles, etc. and at cuising altitude. My photo was taken at sunset, and the main air corridor between Brisbane and Melbourne in Australia goes through the airspace photographed. It was taken at sunset whilst I was flyfishing at sunset over christmas break.
