A nice combination. The red sun and corona is a result of smoke in the air from the Ferguson and Carr fires.

The sun was WNW at that point (6:52AM)

There were quite a few contrails visible on the GOES-16 images

Red dot in the middle is me, orange line is US-50

Suggests the end of the trail would be somewhere south of Lake Tahoe.
