One distinct possibility is what your mom and sister are seeing are military exercises... very possibly aerial refueling training. Rangely is smack dab in the center of the Condor 1 and Condor 2 MOA's (military operations areas). These are areas of airspace (in this case 7,000 to 18,000ft) reserved for special flight training. I've flown my own plane into the area in the past and seen this activity first hand. I'm somewhat surprised that your mom has never noticed jets working in the area before. They're in there all the time.

BUY A CAMERA!

Does she live near the coast of Maine? The sky is so clear in Maine when I was there. Absolutly amazing! Glad she thought to tell you about this. Maybe she should report it to her local news papers and news channels? Thanks for sharing!
