Last night around 11:00 p.m. ish, in Jackson N.J., I happened to look into the sky, and saw something strange. It looked like a cloud, kinda smokey and white. But the shape was not that of a cloud. It was long and thin, arcing over my house. Let explain what I mean by arcing. It started barely visible over the trees to the south, then arced upwards and eventually arced back down toward the trees to my north. It was a couple hundred feet in the air. It was like what you saw on CNN when they showed the rockets from Lebannon shot over their heads towards Israel. I don't know what this was. A rocket? A comet? What leaves a thin long white cloudy trail? Nothing was in the paper or on the news. If anybody knows what I might have seen, please e-mail me with some info. It would put my heart at ease.

It was, in fact, the ghost of a rainbow.


In all seriousness though, I wish I could help you out. Too bad you didn't get a good picture of it.

It was probably the trail left by a jet.
After it's there a while it will kinda look like a cloud.
I think they're called contrails.

Eh, maybe not an exhaust stream.
Sometimes clouds are just weird lookin', y'know?
One time, we had clouds here that looking like they were painted. Like they were from strokes of a brush. Was really weird. Kind of creepy.
But yeah; had you gotten a picture I'm sure it would be much easier to explain or give a better guess.

I gotta agree with that statement.

It could be an earthquake cloud!

I once saw a very strange cloud myself. It had some rain falling out of it and it was moving as fast as the 4 or 5 helicopters spread out around it as they flew low over the tree tops in the direction of a nearby military base. It was a mostly sunny day with no rain anywhere I thought. I heard the rain and helicopters as they flew directly over my position. I quickly moved under an eave of our house to escape most of the rain drops. It flew by in only a matter of seconds. Since I don't usually see clouds escorted by helicopters, I would say that was a strange cloud. I haven't noticed any other strange clouds getting a military escort.

Ah, sorry about that.
I'd taken the ol' Flying Fortress for a sping.
I don't normally make a scene..But, sometimes one can't help it.
