Abstract : The cirrus band case of 13 May 1963, which is reported here, presents a typical example for similar, but less pronounced cases which have been reported. In that first report a working hypothesis has been laid down, which is corroborated by the data described in the following. Since the photogrammetric measurements were not yet done into details, the results are denoted as preliminary. On 13 May 1963, bands which stretched from horizon to horizon were observed from 7:00 until 16:00 z; at 17:00 z, drizzling rain started. Single and stereo photographs were taken. The essential results of photogrammetric measurements as well as of the synoptic exploration are given. (Author)
