Title: Pattern of downstream eddies in stratocumulus clouds over Pacific Ocean
Description:
A pattern of downstream eddies in the stratocumulus clouds over the Pacific 
Ocean west of Baja California, as photographed by the crewmen ofthe Second 
Skylab manned mission from the space station cluster in Earth orbit. The 
clouds, produced by the cold California current running to the south and 
southwest, are prevented from rising by warm air above them.
