In San Francisco we have had cloudless/contrail-less days for many weeks now. So I was wondering what the local chemtrail photographer was up to and looked at his FB page (he's currently photographing in another state). He also had a link to this interesting photo with the comment
Anyone know?

Similar from 1905. The names were still evolving at that time.

See also cirrus uncinus, and cirrus vertebratus. Clouds exist in something of a continuum, so sometimes they fall between two or more types.
