Thanks Exupery, none of the above, in Canada, outside Gananoque ontario, close to American border, would say it heading roughly North south, from my perspective a ball of flame burning steady leaving slight smoke trail, close to evening but still quite sunny out, definately watch 5 mins at least as it went out of site



Good description (the direction helped, too). It very definitely sounds like a contrail.

I hope this thread is not moved to the Skunk Works. It is a good exercise in observation & analysis.

The reason I asked about location is because I once saw the Space Shuttle re-entering in the pre-dawn darkness over Arizona. It was moving from west to east on its way to the Cape. It was a distinct orange spark that left a dull red trail of ionized air behind it. The trail did not billow or roil at all.
