Hello, A few pictures taken from last week.
Taken on 3-31-21 N555HM C55B FL350 MRY(Monterey)-NYL(Yuma)

A nice surprise! Taken on 3-29-21 KANZA91 KC-46A 15-46009 FL350. Unfortunately 30 minutes after sunset, so very grainy.

Taken on 3-24-21 NASA809 ER-2 (Tail number most likely 809 due to its callsign), FL600 PMD(Palmdale)-PMD. Cropped for easier viewing. Visible on FR24 and Planefinder, yet I thought it was invisible to the naked eye. Since it was routing over me, I decided to try to catch it with my 18-400mm lens. To my great surprise, it was actually quite visible (maybe because of excellent viewing conditions), but there it was. It looked like a small C172 at FL200. I have attached FR24 Screenshot.
