Atomic particle condensation trails

I created a cloud chamber using a 500ml beaker and dry ice on March 29, 2017. There are condensation trails visible in the supersaturated 2-propanol cloud in the beam of the bright flashlight.  The source of particles is the Americium-241 insert from a smoke detector.
