There is also a companion medium known as skytyping, which uses a fleet of seven radio-equipped planes that fly in formation and electronically "type" out a 13-letter message in block form. The sky-typed message is 15 miles long and a mile deep and, on a clear day, can be seen in a 40-mile radius for approximately 10 to 30 minutes, depending on atmospheric conditions.

You both answered my question. When you see something like that for the first time and have no idea you're really scratching your head. That's exactly what I saw...

Even with binoculars you can't make out that kind of detail on a plane. I've seen planes that I had trouble seeing the registration numbers when they were parked on the ground and I was a few hundred yards away from them.

These guys are debunkers here for the military and government.
I'll tell you right now he's totally wrong on this image. That is NOT a KC-135 in his picture. it's either a 747-400 or an A340. The plane he took a picture of has winglets and a KC-135 doesn't. What he claims is the refueling boom is the right wing and outboard engine.
As for the others, they all look like normal planes at altitude to me. Oh, and stealth fighters don't "hover".
